Darbareye Elly

Asghar Farhadi Iran, 2009

anarresti's rating of the film About Elly

This is film has, in a way, the subtle quality some directors, like Nadine Labaki are able to give to their work. Without ever even coming close to producing an outright militant subversive art piece, they are very diligent in addressing some of the most important social issues. Some chinese director seem to be doing this also, and Kiarostami was always like this. Regimes have a hard time with this. How to censor?
