    An intimate look at modern day Iranian life that includes typical problems such as divorce, depression, and discrimination amid the oppressive Sharia legal system. It is a great story but a bit too long.

    Wonderful movie depicting moral dilemmas in everyday life. Iran family problems could mirror our own. It was a beautiful story. The children were delightful, so realistic.
