heart-wrenching documentary..." -- San Francisco Chronicle
"'Divorce Iranian Style' reminds you that marital discord knows
no geographic boundaries...If you imagined that Iranian women, following
Islamic teaching, tend to be mute, subservient acolytes to their conjugal
lords and masters, you would be wrong..." -- New York Times
