| one of the best Persian movies
First I watched this movie when I was about 10 years old. After watching again after about 12 years I see that I understood nothing that time. I just remembered some scenes also I knew how it would end.

We can see a lot about Persian traditions in this movie like other works of Ali Hatami. Old houses and families live together. And also couples who eat food in the same plate. I don't think anybody live like this in Iran now. Behrouz Vosoughi was amazing. A different act as a crazy brother. Scenes where he is talking to himself are great.

Great Dialogues is an important characteristics of Hatami's movies. I love dialogs of this movie.
