    Best thing about the film is that at no point it forces the emotions out of its audience. All the actors too did very well, by looking completely ordinary and a part of the setting. I would place this film away from 'good' and keep it in a pile of 'better' cinema.

    The film's relaxed pace, unassuming tone, and respect for its characters all recall the films of Abbas Kiarostami, who provided the story idea, but director Ali Reza Raisian adds a slightly more dramatic and emotional edge.

    Both intensely thoughtful and wonderful to look at.
  3. For filmgoers who like dramas that are spare yet evocative, that focus on the subtleties of relationships, and that feature foreign settings completely off the beaten path, Deserted Station will be a masterpiece.
