Movie Reviews

Thwarted Romance
Amos Lassen | Little Rock, Arkansas | 08/12/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

""The Fish Fall in Love"

Thwarted Romance

Amos Lassen

"The Fish Fall in Love" is an Iranian film that is a touching look at food, family and friendship that is totally enjoyable. Atieh has a passion for food and she runs a small restaurant on the Caspian coast of Iran. It is her pride and joy. Suddenly, Aziz, her fiancé of twenty years earlier makes an appearance and she and her friends believe that he has come back to close the restaurant. Atieh decides to make some of her favorite dishes and serves them to him in an attempt to get him not to do so. It is all great fun and what surprised me most was the level of comedy here. It is an old-fashioned movie with a lot of charm and fine acting. Through food we get a portrait of Iran that few ever get to see.
Charming film about interrupted love
Elish | NY | 02/10/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a gentle film about lives and loves disrupted, the consequences of political exile, good food lovingly prepared, and a charming town on the Caspian sea. Contrary to a previous reviewer'r's opinion, it is not at all ambiguous if you watch and listen carefully. I've watched it three times so far and I like it more each time... The place itself is so seductive, I keep wanting to just be there..."
