| simply another funny out of his word shokof movie
i was at the screening of this movie in the USA.a big group of people laughed their heart out ever after the first 15 minutes of the film was passed and only then and when it was clear that breathful was meant to be an artistic popular statement about all genres of film-making with a serious undertone of bravado piece of filmmakng contributing this almost X rated film to the freedom of women around the world and more specifically for freedom of women in Iran from under what shokof calls a most inhumane dictatorial Islamic Republic Regim ruling his country (iran) at this time. shokof once mentioned in an interview that he would salute all women in the world even if they would be making the choice to do Pornos (which he mentioned as he most innocent and free minded films at all)out of freedom and their own will. his Breathful is another genius work done by a genius mind. the film can not be taken for real as the actors are all OFF their spots. the lines are even more off as in almost all shokof films. if there would be a rating for any of shokof films i would rate them JUST original as they truly do not fit any rating standards in the world. he is free like a bird when he does a movie. his freedom of directing and writing the script gives the most coward people on earth a hero to want to take a step forward and do anything after one sees a film by shokof. this is his strongest contribution where he proves effective as a hero by daring and being just out of this world with his works. contrbuting a film with two almost half naked beautiful Iranian gals (played amazingly by Taies Farzan and Narges Rashidi)to the freedom of women in Iran where women are covered from head to toe in veils is in itself all what the film Breathful and the title means to me.Braver than the word Brave itself. just great. a 10 for all the great ideas and courage and many incredible scenes of this jewel of Modern cinema.
