Wittily observed and quirky romance that's sweet
Ejareh-Nesheenha or the tenants, is a smart comedy set in the 1980's Tehran (the capital city of Iran) and narrates the tale of very unlike people with their own unusual habits and quirks, and one similar interest; their apartment. Ejareh-Nesheenha is a really cool family movie and overall this is a surprisingly sweet film that took me by surprise and was sweetly charming and lovely without falling into cliché - it was different and quirky in a refreshingly enjoyable way. If you are familiar with Iranian movies so you would instantly know that Ejareh-Nesheenha is the funniest movie that was made after the revolution in Iran since now and indeed it benefits from an acclaimed director and cast. So once again if you want to have a good family fun watch this movie and I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
