| great female film for a greater cause
i have never seen a female film.this was the first movie where women ruled the screen and in a spectacular genre of gangster -comedy where men have always been dominant.breathful is unique as ever with shokof directing perhaps his best film (from cinema point of view ) so far. i had a ball watching incredibly beautiful Iranian women filling in the leads and almost half naked throughout the film, and it was greater to see that the film was dedicated to the freedom of women world wide and most specifically to the Iranian women under the Islamic Regim of Iran today. that alone was good enough to sit and watch these two crazy great looking girls playing it out at each other for over 100 minutes (taies farzan and narges rashidi are the leads and magnificent as well). thereafter one can only take the hats off to another finest work in complete freedom of highest originality by the grand master director of most original film (cult is always associated with all shokof films anyway, but this one serves the title at best alongside his masterpiece of classic cults Seven Servants). the lines are incredible as in all his movies i have seen so far. the actings are free as a bird and fit the movie as they are, even though one feels they were perhaps better off if they had been Americans speaking English with an American accent, but then one could also ask Why should they?! it is a funniest 100 minutes i have seen in a long time and curatively put together in fast moving shots and wonderful scenes from Berlin where i have never seen in any other movies. shokof is a painter and it is almost always expected of him to be generous with magnificent locations, perspectives and odd angles for his camera. the film rides the audience through silly scenes and stories and gets one addicted to see how these two helpless drug dealing girls get in and out and back in and deeper into trouble for having started the whole thing on a wrong foot. it is highly recommended and a must if you are a shokof fan. a very big 10 for the whole concept, and everybody who did all to make it.
