| An unremarkable adaptation of a novel
To me, this is a failed adaptation of Naomi Alderman's novel: Disobedience! Since I saw both movies over a short span of time, so comparison was inevitable. Trying hard to make this a possibility in the current atmosphere of Iran, the plot seems to have lost the major essence of the original story. Successfully going from lesbian love in the Jewish faith to heterosexual love in a Muslim context, especially one with the unfair limitations imposed by the Iranian government, takes a lot of writing and directing skills. I think Ida Panahandeh has a long way to go before she's there, but still, this is an admirable start...
