| Loved It! Very Touching Movie
This was a very well made film! After watching the movie, I learned a lot about Iran and their views on dancing.

Pretty intense!

The boy who played the role of Afshin Ghaffarian, the dancer, did an amazing job. Frieda Pinto also played a role in this movie, and was interesting to learn about her character. Everyone had their specific role in the movie, telling the story of what really happens there.

Its a very wild thought to think about what it would be like to live away from home, and the type of lifestyle some people see in the middle east, where this takes place.

If you like interesting stories that are true, you will love this movie!

Hands down one of the more interesting movies i have ever seen.
