Don't trust the rating
Warning: this is a good example of why a movie needs many votes to be on the IMDB top-250. It has a quite engaging story of a woman on a crusade to save her imprisoned husband, but is horribly overplayed and clumsily directed. Every character in every seen acts as insistingly as if it was a matter of life and death, which gets tiresome within the first scene. Only the main character has some natural talent and earns our sympathy as the plot unfolds. The cinematography is often ridiculously dramatic, the music likewise. The movie is betacam and has the overall look of a cheap Asian TV-production. Are you interested in learning more about the famous Iranian cinema, don't start here! What a disappointment.
