The film is about the oppression towards women in Iran. Regardless where they come from, they have limited freedom, such as: no woman may travel on a bus without company. To the eyes of the people with much more freedom, that is completely ridiculous. However, especially in the Muslim world, women may do limited number of things. Through the story of the seven Iranian women, director Jafar Panahi took the risk to reveal the freedomlessness of the Muslim women. In this respect, Panahi is successful. However, every ah-ha he presents in the film is simple, and there is not much story in the 90 minutes of the film. That being said, the pace of the film is slow, and the entertainment value of the film is very limited.
The actresses in the film are far from beautiful. Although beauty is far from the number one thing in a film, the beauty (or lack of it) of the artistes in this film fail to grasp the attention of the audience, especially in such a slow-paced film. The film might suit the taste of those who would like to watch different things and those who want to understand the cultures of different parts of the world. For those who are looking for excitement, they would probably tear down the theater.
P.S.: The film is in Farsi (Persian language) with Chinese and English subtitles. It is shown in Cine-Art House only.
