    I still haven't seen any comments about the Alzheimer issue. I've been dealing with that problem for the last 5 years, and I have NEVER seen a movie that depicts with such amazing reality what living with the disease is.

    The scene of the bathroom's door almost made me stop watching the movie, I couldn't press play as it was like if I would be watching the story of my last years.

    Everything was so accurate to the reality, from the emptiness on Nader's father eyes, to that moment when they realize that their lives are not going to be what they were anymore because spoiler

    The acting, and the script are something beyond words.

    Pretty great. Certainly one of the best films I've seen this year. The screenplay, the performances, the simple and unobtrusive manner it is filmed. Its spot on, great cinema. It also reminds me of why I love great foreign films. They provide a window into a culture I am not accustomed to and the best of them, i.e. this film, don't explain everything to you but instead are intelligent enough to give you just enough information for you to figure out the cultural differences that make this drama work. 5 years 4 months ago

    This is the type of movie that could have been made anywhere. That is actually a plus, because you relate to the characters. The real positive thing about this movie is each character has a good reason why they are in their tragic situation. You root for each character. spoiler 5 years 5 months ago
