Complex, sometimes mind-bending film set at the time of the Western overthrow of the Mossadegh government. We follow five women from disparate backgrounds who all have suffered from an outrageously patriarchal society and find their way to a garden oasis for shelter and to re-create themselves.
Nice use of surrealism here and there. Very moving once I had the characters sorted out. Many beautiful images. Not a story...more a vaguely linear impressionistic take on a time and a place.
Another forgotten gem...from 2009.
