  • David Bax @ Battleship Pretension
    • Excerpt: As nice as it is to see our lead character develop a proudly autonomous personality while unburdening herself of all the hardships of real women in that place, the process is all too artificial, ultimately doing a disservice to those whose lives it attempts to reflect.
  • [New – 11/28] | Samuel Castro @ Ochoymedio.info [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: La historia de una mujer que comienza a desahogarse refleja la situación de todo un género en ciertas culturas
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: If Rahimi begins his film in a room so bare it resembles a cell, he ends it in the selfsame one like something out of ‘Arabian Nights,’ his oppressed wife rendered Sheherazade.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Profoundly disturbing depiction of the grim realities about the oppression women endure under the Taliban regime.
  • Jamie S. Rich @ Oregon Live
    • Excerpt: Left alone with the husband she barely knows, the woman begins to work through her frustration by telling him the things about herself he never bothered to ask. It’s a cathartic confession, bridging the distance between them and intensifying her devotion to a man she sees as a monster.
