    While Milani lacks an overall cinematic vision, she skillfully uses composition and camera movement to underline emotions in each scene.
  3. A daring feminist movie that, while straightforward to a fault, is a rare opportunity to sample a female point of view from Iran, where such a thing is usually a veiled subject.
  4. It's fascinating and moving all the same, both in its depiction of Iranian daily life and in its powerful portrait of female oppression.

    Its awkward mix of polemic and melodramatics probably won't travel very well.
