    Congrad. on your play in this movie!
    Golshifteh is a very talanted actress. I know that people in government secretly like her play but they can’t say that to public…

    most Iranian people don’t approve Hejab… they can’t force it. Even in Arab countries, the government doesn’t force women to have Hejab. Even prophet Mohammad said there is no force in accepting this religion.
    I know people in Iran love her play in this movie.
    When does this government want to understand that we don’t give a shit about thier Islamic rules?
    I believe in god but I don’t care about what the Islamic religion says. It’s all bull shit. They make it up the whole the time.
