A fascinating mix of documentary approach, fictionalized drama, and biting social commentary - the director was officially banned from filmmaking for 20 years, but is known for embracing his limitations and using creative workarounds (i.e. smuggling one of his films out of the country in a cake). This film addresses sexism in both the entertainment industry and in Iran, by way of subtle metaphors and gorgeously shot rural landscapes.
