In Tehran, married Emad and Rana Etesami are both theater actors, they who have the leads in their theater company's latest offering, "Death of a Salesman". Emad also teaches literature in a boys' school as a day job, he who is well liked by his students who know about his night job. Emad and Rana are not only forced immediately to evacuate their apartment building but move on the spur of the moment when the building in which they live shows signs of major structural damage. One of their acquaintances offers them a small apartment that he owns, the most recent tenant who has just moved out, but many of whose personal possessions still remain probably to be forever unclaimed. When Rana is alone at the new apartment, an incident occurs which is related to the old tenant: Rana buzzes into the building who she believes is Emad, only to find it is someone who was coming to see the previous tenant. What happens traumatizes Rana, who is injured in the process. She also never does see the person in question, but only knows that he too probably injured himself, most specifically cut his foot. Rana and Emad decide not to file a report with the police. However, the incident affects Rana's psyche which in turn affects how she relates to Emad as a man and husband. In turn, Emad becomes consumed with finding the man, whose flight from the scene includes he leaving his car keys in the apartment with his vehicle parked in the building's parking lot. Emad's focus on this matter leads to him not being able to sleep and affects his work life. The incident threatens to tear Rana and Emad's marriage apart, which may be further exacerbated if they have differing views on how best to handle the situation.

I have just watched this movie on DVD, and had to write a review for it because i'm glad i watched it. It is a movie that is very intriguing, but some of the characters are poorly developed, and the plot is rather unclear at times. The director of this movie uses a lot of different methods to tell the story, including black and white (sadly not used much) and old style (though it does add to the movie). It is a movie that is too intriguing for me to give a definite recommendation, but i'll give it a 6 out of 10. Perhaps you'll like it.

This is a film with a low budget but it is well shot and not bad acted. The story is slow moving but still it tells a story of a professional killer who is on the hunt for a young girl he doesn't know and whom he takes to a secluded island. The only other people who know about the island are the couple who own it and they decide to take a week off to visit and take a hike together. The killer does not recognize the young girl and goes through the woods to find her but is caught and he is set free. Then the couple are back and decide to continue their vacation on the island. They decide to stay in a cabin and they want to have sex. One of them decides to have sex with her daughter in a tent while the other is forced to watch. I recommend this film to those who like slow paced movies. It is worth a look.

Well, I went into this movie with no expectations and left the theater with a couple of very strong opinions about what I had just seen. I had not seen a movie like this before and my mind was quite prepared for it. But I was not satisfied. Yes, it's a very dark movie. It's a film about a young woman's struggle with the death of her father, a man who was buried under a huge amount of concrete, a woman who was placed in a hospital because she couldn't control her violent impulses, and a husband who was completely paralyzed by grief. But it doesn't end there. One of the main themes is loss. When we have lost someone we are not able to understand what we have lost. When we are overcome by grief, our grief takes on a new form. And the grief continues to affect us even after the loss. In the end, there is no end to grief and no reason to reach the point of grief. The film is about the pain that is left behind when you lose someone, especially if they are loved. We don't want to feel pain anymore, we want to heal and move on. We want to move on with our lives, but that doesn't happen. And that is the most beautiful and painful part of this film. It is a film about loss and about grief and about healing. And it is done so very well. I liked the fact that it did not go down the path of a simple revenge film, but it went the other way. It was very different from the typical revenge film. It was very artistic and very well done. I also liked the fact that it was a film that was true to the reality of the situation. It did not try to pretend that it was fiction. It did not pretend that it was a movie. It was just a real documentary. So, I would recommend it to anyone who is ready to go a little farther than just a simple revenge film. It was a very powerful film that would make you think and it would make you think about grief and the loss of loved ones. I really enjoyed this film and I think that the movie did a good job of conveying the reality of grief. I think it is a good movie, and I would recommend it to anyone who is ready to go a little farther than just a simple revenge film. It was a very powerful film that would make you think and it would make you think about grief.

I'm just going to keep it short and simple. A man named Lyudmila Pavlichenko is kidnapped, her husband is killed, and the police are trying to find out who did it. While it's really not that hard to follow and keep track of what's happening, it's the way it's told that makes the movie a bit confusing. For the most part, the movie is shown as a series of flashbacks, and we're given a sense of what it must have been like for the victim of the crime to have to go through that ordeal. However, the flashbacks are never that clear, and I didn't know what the point of them was. There's one flashback that shows what a number of people are doing while they wait for her to be released, but the other is used for a very short scene. Then there are two flashbacks that seem to tie up all of the loose ends. It gets a bit confusing and I just wasn't all that interested in what was going on. There's also some random scenes that get reused, such as a scene where a group of people are all together waiting for a long time for something to happen, and another where Lyudmila is just going to be alone in the woods. These scenes are done very well, but I just didn't really care about them and felt they were unnecessary. For those who have seen the film, I'd recommend it. I haven't seen it, but it seems that for the most part, the movie is pretty straightforward and the details that are left out can be explained easily, but sometimes they seem like they're not needed at all. All in all, it's not bad, but it's just not that great. I just can't really say that I enjoyed it very much, but it isn't terrible. If you're a fan of the lead actress, or the character of Lyudmila, then it might be worth checking out. But I have to say that it's a pretty forgettable movie.

An Italian director, who's best known for making sci-fi films, returns to the movie-making world with this film. I enjoyed watching it. It's a good film with a very good plot. It is far from the ones that I find with the best of those foreign films I watch on my DVD player, because this one is very, very good. The acting of the whole cast is excellent. The script is excellent too. The storyline is very, very good. The movie is about a woman named Zita, who's husband has disappeared. When she's in a mad panic, she decides to take a job as a security guard for the police, and she soon meets an ex-cop, who has a daughter, who wants to become a lawyer. Zita tells her about the case, and then goes back to the police to try to find her husband. It's a very, very good movie, with a very good script, and an excellent story. I recommend this film for all those who like movies with a plot, and they can watch it without expecting the film to be a sci-fi film, and watch it as a good film. It's one of those films that will make you laugh, and at the same time, feel sorry for it's characters, because it's a very, very good film. I give it a 7/10.

During the first two-thirds of the movie, you may find yourself watching this and thinking, "this can't be happening." But as the movie progresses, it's very interesting to watch because you realize that this is not happening. It's like they are living a day-by-day reality. The movie is shot with natural cinematography and helps to build the tension. The writing is at times too slow for my taste. The action is kind of unreal and doesn't feel real. I think it's a good movie and it's nice to see what happens when people can have a better relationship with their pets.

An excellent movie, with great performances by the cast, excellent cinematography and an excellent storyline, with a very interesting twist to the beginning, where we can see a professional-type of espionage, which is really intriguing. The directing is really good, and in my opinion is one of the best in a French movie. I have not watched any other movie by this director, and I think this is one of his best movies. The way the story was told, the direction of it and the whole movie, was really good.

This is a bit of a stretch. This movie is not about illegal drug trade, but about a huge sex industry in New York, in the 70s. Basically all of the major story lines are about sex trafficking and prostitution. I've heard of some violent sex trafficking, but I've never heard of a movie that dealt with that. I can't say I enjoyed this movie. The story is not particularly interesting. The sex trade aspect was not well developed, and was cliche. The acting was not stellar, but that's not a big deal. The script was not particularly strong, but that's not a big deal either. All the main actors were believable in their roles. This movie is NOT a masterpiece. It is a bad movie. I didn't feel the need to see this movie again, and it did not earn it's place in my collection. It is definitely not worth your time. It's definitely not worth your money. You can get a good look at the sex trade in the movie, but there isn't much. Maybe it would be interesting to see if there was a strong focus on prostitution in this movie. Overall, this movie is mediocre at best.

i actually thought this movie was a bit more honest than the original. I really think that if they could've stayed away from the subject matter and gone back to the original story they could've made a much better film. I also thought the ending wasn't quite as good as it could've been. Still, its a very good movie, and well worth seeing.

According to the director, I was supposed to see the movie, but I don't know when. It seems that there is some lack of information. Can't I see the movie and not wait a few months? Can't I see the movie in the theaters? Or can I wait for DVD? I am asking myself. Because I can't remember any of the main characters, except the director of this movie. That's why I really like the movie. I like the atmosphere, the whole movie. My suggestion: I advise you to see it. You will like it. I don't really recommend to wait for the DVD.

A well-acted movie. An intelligent movie. If you want to understand the main character, this movie is for you. But, if you just want to see a film with some good acting and some intelligence, please watch "Inferno" or "The Descent" instead.

In the UK, David Suchet's 1980's crime drama 'The Drowning' was praised for its realistic depiction of the high-pressure inner city London slums, where drug dealing, prostitution and petty crime flourished. In the US, after the failure of the US version, John Singleton's 1982 Australian film 'The Drowning' was perceived as a new classic crime thriller, but in France the film was denounced by the establishment for its shocking violence and unrelenting brutality, and a significant number of viewers were killed by police while watching it. But now, two decades after the French version was released, 'The Drowning' has been reissued in DVD by the French film industry, in the hope of re-introducing audiences to the exciting story of French gangster Raymond 'Ray' Martine. Martine (Michel Bouquet) is a corrupt police officer who is a danger to the community and his own family. He is also a godfather to his younger brother and that is why Raymond has taken the family's name. However, the problems that threaten to destroy Raymond's family are more than a few. His brother is a prisoner at the Dolo, a prison where drug dealers and prostitutes are imprisoned. Raymond also wants to reunite with his wife, but her presence at the prison prevents him from doing that. When Raymond tries to find her, his actions are to be seen by the police and her brother. He is subsequently arrested, but escapes from prison. He then has to choose between getting his wife back or seeking revenge on Raymond, who has murdered his wife and his brother. When the police are around Raymond, he is considered a threat to society. As Raymond pursues his revenge on Raymond, his violent and lethal actions go unchecked, and society is at risk. 'The Drowning' has been compared to the American gangster movie 'The Godfather', but there is no comparison to the brutal violence in 'The Drowning' or the brutal violence in 'The Godfather'. There are no heroes and the protagonist is a man who is a threat to the society he lives in. A man who needs to choose between revenge and justice. And what exactly is revenge? It is murder, plain and simple. Martine has to choose between his violent revenge and the rule of law. The only difference is that 'The Godfather' shows the choices of Raymond to the audience. 'The Drowning' is a great film that would have been perfect if it had been the first feature length film from the French film industry to be released in the UK, but its quality is so high that it would have been better to have been released as a double feature with the French version, which 'The Drowning' is. The film was already long in the making, and since it was to be a double feature, it is good that the director wanted to put the French version on DVD. This is something the French film industry, in my opinion, should be proud of. The film is still shocking and intense, but it is much better than many American gangster films that have been released in the UK recently. The cinematography is excellent, the acting is superb and the storyline is riveting. I strongly recommend this film to anyone who wants to watch a film in which violence and a brutal story will not be a deterrent to watching a good film.

The movie "All the President's Men" (1969) was a well-deserved Best Picture Oscar winner, but it wasn't until 1978 that this film became available on DVD and VHS as a perfect viewing opportunity. This is a story of several men, including the legendary Ronald Reagan, who were put in charge of investigating the murder of President John F. Kennedy. The story is a bit complex, but that is to be expected because of the use of different viewpoints and storylines. The film is mostly filmed in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., and all the characters are played by actors. But you can see that the film is more political than entertainment and in that way, the film is much better than a typical film about a murder investigation. I highly recommend this film to anyone who has a very good memory. It is a good story, and it tells the story of the investigation of the Kennedy assassination very well. I do recommend it to people who are very interested in the assassination of President Kennedy. 7 out of 10 stars, excellent.

This is a very compelling, non-linear story with an interesting and unpredictable twist at the end. It's not easy to explain in words, but it is enough to give you a sense of it. There are many twists and turns in the story, and it's interesting to see what happens next. I think the movie is about two things: Sade and how he lived in his time. Sade as a child and his death are the central themes of the movie, but the story is very much about Sade's love for his mother, and his attempt to understand her. The central theme is that people love others and take care of them. People who act selfishly are selfish. This is often misunderstood. He says in the movie that we should be selfish towards the other person, but he does not see it that way. He is selfish with himself. I believe this is important to understand. The movie is about these ideas about the real and false self. The self is important for us, but sometimes it is not necessary to use it. This is a topic that is very important to understand, and this is also why the movie is interesting.

The story of "Hearts of Fire" tells of a young man, who is naive to the world around him and is locked up in a tiny prison for his crimes. The story was told very well and the acting of the main cast was great. As an adult, you may find that you don't understand much of what is going on but, as a child, you will understand it all.

To me this movie is too bad. I think it is a TV movie and not a movie with an director. It does not have an interesting plot and a good production. I can not understand why directors think this is a good idea. The film is like a bad TV movie with a bad director. In my opinion, this is the most interesting TV movie I have ever seen. The plot is not interesting. The film is badly made. The lighting is too dark. The sound is bad. The acting is not good. It seems that the director has spent all his time trying to be clever but has failed because he is not clever. To make a good TV movie, one needs to be creative and not be a director.

I have to admit that I have never heard of this film before watching it on TV. I am a big fan of "historical films" and this film did not disappoint. I know that the protagonist of this film is a villain, but I cannot remember his name and his character is very different from the one shown on the poster and on the commercials. Also the movie has a very interesting story line. But, as I said before, I am a big fan of historical films and I did not expect this movie to be so good. My advice is to watch this film for the story and not for the villain, although he is definitely a good actor.

Sometimes when a film has such a clear and consistent plot line, it is easy to miss the subtle meanings of the plot. This is where One Hour Photo falls down. This film has a very simple story, yet it is so brilliant in so many ways. The beginning is really a bit confusing, as it is for the viewer, but once the film gets going you are hooked. The use of sound is so effective, as it reminds you that this is an artsy film, and it is not just another movie about a man who finds out he has HIV. The film is extremely well shot, the characters are very believable and the dialogue is always at a brilliant level, without it being over the top. The first 20 minutes of the film are very impressive, as they are very well crafted, and you feel like you are part of this film. The music is amazing, and the lighting and color is amazing. The cinematography and editing are incredible, and it all comes together in a wonderful way. You can see the writing on the wall, but still, the writing is so clever and brilliant that it works. I never once lost interest in the film, even when it was still going on. There is no question that this is a brilliant film. The cast is just superb, with very strong performances from all of them, especially from "Henry" (played by American-born actor Nathan Lane), who plays his role as such a smart and caring man who is really struggling with what he has to do. The only other actors I could find to complain about were the female actors, however the writing is really on the eye of the beholder and one can't help but love all of these characters and have a good time with them. Overall, One Hour Photo is a very good film, which I would recommend to anyone who has an interest in film. It is by no means perfect, but it is a brilliant film and I highly recommend it to anyone who has an interest in art and film. Grade: A+

I don't understand why this film is so low on IMDb's top 250 films list. But here is a summary of why this film is so low on IMDb's top 250 films list. First of all this is a great thriller. The acting is first rate, the story is gripping and well told, the production values are first rate, and the soundtrack is great. However, the film is really slow. The first 45 minutes or so are slow and boring. The story just drags. But it gets better. It really does get better in the last 45 minutes or so. In fact, the last 45 minutes is the best part of the film. After that the film gets really tense. The scene with the kids and the cops is outstanding. I have never seen that scene before, but it was awesome. I was so pleased that the kids reacted so well to the situation and eventually the cops get scared and move away. I also like the ending. I don't like the idea of a father punishing his son, but it's what the film needed. It's a brilliant movie and if you like movies like this then go see it.

A film that takes the audience on a journey of grief through the eyes of a woman and her children as they struggle to come to terms with their mother's death and the guilt that she must carry. It is a very personal story, but all too real. It's not about revenge, it's about forgiveness, and the journey is hard. We are given a glimpse of a mother struggling to come to terms with the death of her children, and the way she must go about this, without an adult to help her. A brave woman who refuses to accept her loss and the "mission impossible" that it is, and she chooses to live and be her own person, even though the physical and mental effects of her loss are overwhelming. The film does a good job of showing the different facets of the mother and her children, but it also shows the difficulties in understanding and dealing with loss, which is shown as an issue within the family itself. The performances are all very good, but I think the performance of the two daughters who play the daughters are the best. The older one, played by Elke, is almost unrecognizable, and her performance is heartbreaking. I think this is the best performance by a child actress since Rosanna Arquette in "Whiplash." I think she is very convincing in her role, and it's hard to believe that she is just a baby at the age of 9. The younger girl, played by Rachael, is also very good. I thought she was quite talented, and had a strong presence. Her performance was more mature, and there is a lot of emotion in her performance. I think she was outstanding. The film does a good job of showing the impact of loss, and how difficult the process of grieving can be, especially when you know that your daughter is gone. But it also shows the emotional toll of grief, and how the need to hold onto those who are close to you can be overwhelming. A really good film that I would recommend.
