| Great movie. One of my favorites of the last 10 years Iranian cinema.
What I like most in "The Day I Became A Woman" is the structure of it (3 tales starting with a 9 year old girl, moving on to a young woman and finishing with an old woman).

My favorite part is the last part, a dreamy, surreal tale of an old woman who goes to Kish Island to fulfill her dreams. It is the most humorous of the three tales too.

The style of the day I became a woman is different from other Iranian movies of this decade, and that is another reason that it makes it so charming.

Don't think too hard and try to enjoy the image. It is beautiful.
