Marziyeh Meshkini's compelling and poignant study of the elementary problems faced by women in Eastern societies looks at three different generations in a triptych of subtle, bittersweet and surreal episodes. In the first, a little girl, Hava, has reached her ninth birthday and finds that she must put away her childhood and accept the responsibilities of becoming a woman. The second focuses on a girls' cycling race and on Ahoo, the young woman leading the way, who is hounded by her husband and family to give up her simple sport. The final episode concerns an old woman, determined to acquire all the material possessions she has never had in her life to create her final, perfect home.
Ultimately, The Day I Became A Woman is an eloquent and poetic celebration of the spirit and dignity of women.

Very Well Put Together - The Day I Became a Woman review by Cato

Spoiler Alert

A very good film about the plight of women in Iran, with three sections showing a young girl in the first, a young woman on a bicycle racing against other women against the wishes of her husband, and in the third part an old woman buying all she can with a large amount of money which she's come by. It's an intriguing film directed by an Iranian woman, Marziyeh Mershkini, who tries to show us the way in which women are treated in this part of the world. Excellent photography.
