Beautiful textures and colors really dramatize this allegorical series of "fables". Appropriate use of a real location to set a fantasy land allegory in. Much is felt here through the cinematography and framing of the still shots.
Stark Iranian landscapes make for a meditatively beautiful odyssey of idiosyncrasies. I wonder whether these odd encounters would seem as off-kilter if I weren't a foreigner looking in or if they seem like people on the fringe to an Iranian viewer as well.
