As the film unfolds, we understand there is good reason for this. It very well describes a society in which a group of people – grown-up men – treat other members of society – children and women – with the lightness of a cartoon: having absolute power over their existence, they enter and exit their subjects as they please. Most probably, this also represents the lightness well by which these men experience the world they live in, their relations with others, and their responsibilities; but, what about all other members of such society – women and children?
Nasser Zamiri, born 1977 in Iran, started his artistic work in 1994 after going through the training of the Iran Association of Young Cinema. He shot his first film in 1998. So far, his films have been screened nationally and internationally, and have won many awards.
