Love in a warm climate
- Tehran: City of Love review by ML
Media reviews of "Tehran: City of Love" are rather diffident. The reviewers like the film, but complain that it is too downbeat, too hard on its characters. In other words, whilst praising the film, they feel it would be better if it were either more French or more Hollywood.
I think they are missing the point: love, says Jaberansari, can be difficult in Tehran. This film may not be at the same level as fellow Iranian Abbas Kiarostami's "10", but it is a very good film, with great characters and strong performances. I have found that it lives in the memory.
