This is one powerful powerful movie. Set in a small Iranian village in 1986 and based on a true story it is about of a woman who's husband has set his eyes upon a much younger woman (girl actually 14) and does not want her anymore and the links he will go thru to be rid of her. Great performances abound, I think the biggest name is James Caviezel who plays a Iranian /French reporter but Shoreh Aghdashlou as a female village elder and Mozhan Marno as Soraya are fantastic. And I must say be advised this movie is brutal, it doesn't spare you the ritual of horror. All that said this is some powerful movie making.
