Editorial Reviews

A tale of temporary marriage a ritual in Islamic countries this box-office hit from Iran offers insight into that country s contemporary attitude toward relationships and marriage. Small-town factory manager Mahmoud travels to Tehran to visit his injured partner. There he meets and falls for Sima, a modern Iranian woman who is much different than Mahmoud s servile wife. He asks Sima to join him in a temporary marriage, but the relationship does not turn out like he envisions.

Format: DVD
Basically, this is the Iranian version of "Fatal Attraction". I was fascinated by the concept of temporary marriage as it is practiced in Iran by the righteous and faithful, so I rented it. This flick is a rather pedestrian effort in filmmaking, an exercise in mediocrity. The plot is full of holes, especially concerning Mahmood's friend and former boss. The actor playing Mahmood is miscast - he is not convincing as a manager/executive and definitely does not cut it as a loverboy. He would do much better playing a taxi driver, a shopkeeper, or a farmer. The actress playing Sima is also miscast - not only she is beautiful (even her outfits, which are unflattering to say the least, could not detract from her looks), but there is also something noble and dignified about her physical appearance that makes her unsuitable for this type of role. There is zero eroticism in the movie, zero sensuality, zero humor, zero chemistry between Mahmood and Sima, and their romance seems as cold as ice. When he proposes a temporary marriage (as a good Muslim, he could not engage in that sort of a relationship without it, as he put it), I could not believe that she actually goes along with his plan. Although other than Mahmood's proposal, I did not see any other evidence of a marriage taking place - like a ceremony, for example, or contract-signing. I kept wondering as Sima was eying Mahmood in the beginning: what in the world would a woman like Sima find in a man like Mahmood? She was way out of his league. I would skip this one. If you want to see a truly great film from Iran about obsession, get "The Willow Tree" instead.

Format: DVD
A married businessman's extramarital affair turns scary when he attempts to break up. Sound familiar? But this isn't a remake of FATAL ATTRACTION. This is a quieter film, nicely told. Whereas FA went for paroxysm and panic, this steers a thoughful course.

The main actors are very good with the beautiful Hedye Tehrani, as the other woman, taking top honors. Too bad the story couldn't continue with the character she exhibited at the beginning of the film: smart, confident and forthright (she persists in inviting the married man into her home for a drink -- and ultimately to the bedroom). Her character's backstory was one of the most interesting parts of the story but it was too brief.
