Mystic Iran: The Unseen World
Brian H. Appleton | San Jose, Ca USA | 04/25/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"First it came as a revelation to me and to many Iranians and foreigners that women dervishes even exist in Iran. For me this film apart from its beautiful cinematography and exquisite portrayal of Persian landscape, architecture, history, people and religions, came as close as is humanly possible to portraying an altered state of consciousness on film. I think this documentary is as close as a spectator can get to having a religious experience. The soft purring voice narration of Shohreh Aghdashloo as a caravan of jewels passes by your sences and the obvious compassion in the hearts of the dervishes of Kurdestan combine to make this film truely unique and in a spiritual dimension. I highly recommend this to anyone yearning for the path of the Sufi..."
Great intro for most...

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD was a great intro, for most, about the mysticism of mainly Islam, namely Sufism. There was very little time spent on the original religion of Iran and/or Persia: Zoroasterianism. Most of the DVD was on the Dervishes of Kurdistan, in Iran, and their traditions. I would almost strike out the verbiage about the Zoroasterians and their traditions on the DVD description and focus mostly on the traditions of Dervishes and Sufis of Iran. As an Iranian, I was somewhat familiar with the topic and was really looking forward to learning more and delving into the traditions of my country's native religion of Zoroasterian."
Mystic Iran: enticing, mesmerizing, unique
Avisheh Mohsenin | Chicago, IL United States | 07/11/2005

"It is a beautiful documentary which leaves you thinking and wondering.... very well directed and put together. Unique scenes of going to Trance by female sufi's. I highly recommend it."
An interesting view of an interesting culture

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Looking at this video I forgot that it is taking place in modern times. This video shows a very interesting and unknown part of the Iranian (Persian) culture. For me Iran is mysterious and I will be glad when the political situation changes to make it easier to travel there."
