    I loved the movie. HatamiKia made me love his movie despite the fact that it is based on characters and personalities who really exist in Iran and I hate them...I call it a success...I call it a good film-making...Hatami Kia has a good message for the fundamentalist authorities of Iran...I don't expect a Non-Iranian understands this movie..
