  1. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Half Moon

  2. Ben Dooley's rating of the film Half Moon

    Famous Kurdish composer Mamo compels his ten middle-aged sons to travel by bus with him from Iran to Iraqi Kurdistan for a concert. They collect a singer at a village of banished female singers, but she has to flee at a checkpoint. A powerful and ultimately dark expression of the absurd, mundane brutality of a society that fears even music, combining neorealism with surrealist dream allegory/myth (and humour too).

  3. bennievermeer's rating of the film Half Moon

    In Ghobadi's unique blend of comedy and tragedy, 'Half Moon' reflects the dire situation of artists in a region torn by fanaticism and war, but it also tells a mythical story about the magic of music and the journey to death. Read my full review:

  4. All Is Grace's rating of the film Half Moon

    Kurds, music, bad government, road movie, some goofy characters for hilarity, graves, winter.... Yeah right, it's Ghobadi. 2 stars for beautiful landscapes.
