    Easy storyline to follow, that highlights lives of women affected by Iranian law. This is conveyed with smart and diverse characters from different backgrounds which makes for an amazing film. Oppression shows the difficulties of Iranian women to the western world, however humour and mutual interest make it worth watching.

  1. Women's roles and the eternal fight to expand their rights in Iranian society get a light, hugely entertaining treatment in Jafar Panahi's Offsides.

    In his most accessible and spontaneous picture, ranking Iranian helmer Jafar Panahi reveals unsuspected comic gifts barely visible in his dramatic festival winners "The White Balloon," "The Circle" and "Crimson Gold."

    Offside is blatantly metaphoric and powerfully concrete, deceptively simple and highly sophisticated in its formal intelligence.
