I saw this movie last night in San Diego and was truly enthralled by it. As I am not an Omar Khayyam scholar, the details of whether the story is accurate, has enough Persian language in it, etc. are not important. Those people went to the movie expecting to learn all about Omar Khayyam. They missed the point of the movie, which is that we need to pass on the best parts of our cultures to our children. Why is a story important in a culture? There is a quote in the movie about how we remember the things that touch us in the heart. This movie is about Omar K., but it is more about how we should cherish our literature, stories, cultures. It gave me the same feelings that I had when seeing Roots for the first time. As for the acting Vanessa Redgrave is amazing, and so is the little boy who plays Kamran. As for the scenery, music, editing - I haven't seen anything better this year.
