Darbareye Elly

Asghar Farhadi Iran, 2009

Wee Hunk's rating of the film About Elly

My sister recommended this movie to me. It's about how things fall apart when there's a crisis. Everyone starts playing the blame game. It was refused by Japanese film festivals because the depiction of Iran was different from what they thought it should be. The fact is that this same story could be set anywhere. It's almost like people are the same everywhere.
