Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It's a movie whose good heart is outweighed by its heavy hand.
Rotten: This autobiographically inspired tale of a wealthy Jewish family in Tehran suffering under Iran's shift to fundamentalist Islam, which played in print as hard-hitting but nuanced, now feels like a simplistic, somewhat pandering melodrama.
Rotten: Long on cardboard characterizations and short on genuine tension.
Rotten: Heavy with earnest good intentions but too underpowered and oddly packaged to deliver the emotional gut punch its subject demands, Septembers of Shiraz is a disappointing misfire.
Amazing Salma !
A great book, and a great movie so well served by the actors, particularly Salma Hayek-Pinault !
Bravo and thank you Salma.
I enjoyed watching this movie. Adrien Brody did a terrific job of acting. The movie was exciting and a sure thriller. I have watched it twice so far and have not been disappointed. See for yourself.
