Spoiler Alert

I must confess I have not seen many Iranian films and so this was a little surprising in that of what little we read and hear in the western press, this movie told a perfectly 'normal' story that could have been played in many other western or industrialized country. Very good natural acting including the children. I must also admit I was a little put off when the film begins to get a 'little' American when people start blaming others for a woman that goes missing rather than have a character apply some logic as the reason of her disappearance.
