Enjoying foreign films of all types, I found this one extremely interesting and rewarding. It starts with the difficulties of refugees in Germany: will they be able to stay or will they be sent back? Fariba is in Germany having fled Iran because of a lesbian affair for which she was imprisoned by the authorities, now awaiting her fate at the hands of German authorities. To stay in Germany she takes the place of a young man who died, gets work illegally in a factory where she meets a woman named Anne, and deals with difficulties posing as a man and working illegally. She is neither triumphant nor defeated through this experience, producing a very realistic feeling in an unusual and absorbing story. I liked it very much.

I think this movie was pretty good. It kind of reminded me of Boys don't cry. Its about a girl who flees Iran, for her love of another woman, and if she returns she is executed. She goes to Germany disguised as a man, and falls in love with a girl. The girl finds out shes a girl and still loves her but the girls ex- husband is upset. I wont tell you more, but the ending kind of leaves you hanging. There is an okay love-making scence. I would reconmend it!

I honestly didn't know exactly what to expect from this movie, and I had my doubts and reservations because of its delicate subject. The only movie I had seen before dealing with this kind of subject was Boy's don't cry, and I honestly didn't have the stomach to watch it all through. I had to stand up and leave the movie theater when the rape scene started. However this movie, Unveiled, has a more digestible story. It's a harsh and depressing story no less, but with a better ending (as sad as it might be). The mood is gloomy and sad, which goes well with the story happening on screen. And looking at other realities such as these does help you put your own life in perspective, especially if you are a woman.

The movie is about a woman who flees Iran for being condemned and threatened with death after getting involved with another woman. She arrives to Germany hopeful to be received as a political refugee, but they don't grant her the stay. Opportunity knocks on her door when she befriends another male refugee who dies. She then steals his identity and gets to stay as a man in Germany for undefined time. She only manages to get some minor jobs with small pay because she doesn't have papers. In a factory she meets Anne, a young single mother, and her obtuse friends. She gets involved with Anne as a man, but eventually comes out clean revealing her true identity. All along she works towards getting papers to stay or move somewhere else. Things unravel in unexpected ways and she ends up returning to her home country, but with a new identity.

It is a slow movie, but a very good one no less. So, if you are patient enough, and enjoy foreign cinema, you might enjoy it.

I enjoyed watching the movie although overall it was a rather disturbing movie due to the nature of life within. I think this statement could best be understood by watching the movie.

I did enjoy how the different stories all came together, very cleverly formulated. It just goes to show you how closely related we all are.

This is an interesting story, one with twists and turns that are unexpected. Overall the story comes across without distractions - it is a well told story with good acting, filming and directing.
