Nostalgia indeed ...

by Fatollah on

Now, I seem to comprehend who Forough Farrokhzad was! She was truely a gift for our beloved country and it's people. I am so proud of her and her achievements, her memory will last forever through her work. Each scene full of meaning, I became so sad, depressed and felt enlightenment at the same time!.  

Thanks for the post, you too Ali P.

Oh can't get more depressing than this.

I'm beyond moved, and I have only watched 5 minutes. That scene killed me with counting powerful!

I think I'll watch the rest while I have digested this first shocking, moving, heartbreaking scenes...later, on a good day. Not today.

Thank you so much for posting this wonderful film! I will post it on my facebook so many non-Iranian would watch too...

Great film.  Farokhzad is & was  a Shir e Zan in Iranian literary history.  Right, She was ways a head of her time!

of seeing this on big screen a couple of years ago. Amazingly powerful! A woman way ahead of her time.

May she rest in peace.
