Forming new families after death or divorce is never easy, even with the best of intentions, and the problem knows no geographic boundaries. A straightforward, well-acted and perceptive Iranian film that addresses this problem with skill and insight against an exotic background.

I liked this movie ... maybe there are a lot of example of this story however director's cinema language is very beautiful. Also I didnt understand how he managed this colour grading in 1996 ... using with light sensitive lenses? some scenes had purple tones.
Majidi'nin filmin ilk sahnesinde ve son sahnesinde kullandığı fotoğraf metaforu çok derinlikli ve boyutlu. Çok sıradan bir konuyu, Majidi İran sinemasının umut ekseninde çok da naif bir şekilde ele alıyor.
