35mm print “Shot entirely from the front of a car and using (with one exception) just two camera angles, this low-budget digital sheds light on the predicaments of six women and a child – all inhabitants of modern Tehran – as they argue, joke, cajole and comfort each other during ten brief journeys. It also explores the knotty relationships between reality, fiction and truth, and between the actors, the audience and the film-maker. It’s a quietly audacious experiment in which its creator’s determination to eliminate visible traces of ‘direction’ from the equation makes for unusually forthright viewing.” – Time Out (London)
