If you have enjoyed other great Iranian films like The Big Babylonski, The Muppets Take Persepolis, or Sleepless in Susa, be sure not to miss this one. It's won awards, but it's not a comedy. Far from it; it's more like a root canal. This somewhat O. Henryesque trail of woe is paved with pot-holes filled with angst into which the main character invariably can not avoid stepping. He must have been born under the astrological sign of Stupidus Major! Poor guy just can't catch a break. Is this the Iranian Willy Loman? Oh, what tangled webs we weave when first we practice to deceive! He is not just an Iranian, he is the Everyman struggling with the problems of a modern world, with a broken family, debtors prison, misunderstandings, and just plain bad luck. Although he brings most of his misfortune upon himself, he still keeps trying to do the right thing, ergo the Hero, or anti-hero, or tragic-hero. Ecce homo! Try it Mikey,you may like it or see yourself!
