Subtitles could have been better but loved the film. Thank you.

Such a contrast - joyful start and tragic ending. Gripping. Quite a bit of dialogue lost because of white subtitles on white background.

Marvellous film. A bit long. Difficult to read subtitles.

Spanish language!

What a conundrum! A mix up. V good but a pity words on white background made it difficult to follow.

Thought provoking! I was unlucky and could not see the subtitles as a tall person was in front. Did not quite get the plot. Shame.

Good film. The 'big secret' was a tad obvious but it was enjoyable nonetheless. Subtitles were the worst I;ve ever seen (or not seen) though…

Thank you for a good start of the season! :) Shame of the mysterious subtitles in some critical moments. SHORT - 5 Our contemporary communication mine field will hopefully not take us that far.

Reminiscent of Tolkein, however the hero ends up with no money, no partner and no livelihood. A very different take on it.
4
Great acting, atmospheric, no background music. The end fizzled slightly but a beautiful film.
4
Short film very clever & pertinent. Main film brilliant psychological drama- only let down by hard to read subtitles.
4
Intense & passionate film. Couldn't always work out who was who & the white subtitles not always readable.
4
Excellent start. I look forward to the future screenings.

Although a little slow to start but sudden turn of events turning the film into a "who done it" was gripping and had one guessing until the end . Loved the build up of the characters profile and the wedding itself , which was dramatically cut short by the kidnap . Enjoyed this Iranian film makers style and his choice of actors .
4
Enjoyed film. Subtitles a bit faint.

Short - I guess it had a message but altogether distasteful. Long - Absorbing but shame about loss of subtitles on every white background!

Short Quirky & satirical. Somewhat too close for comfort at times!! Main Pleasant enough but not particularly gripping.

Too long and a bit predictable but still enjoyable.

Enjoyed the suspense build up at the beginning. Allowed your imagination to do the work.

Bit too long and second half slow. Difficult to follow subtitles (white on white) and language very fast. Helpful if I could understand Spanish.
