Very quiet, respectful film that I could not stay awake for. I watched the first half hour, went to sleep and waited a week to fight my way through the last hour. The camera stays almost exclusively on Badii, as he searches the mountains outside of Teheran looking for someone to bury him should he commit suicide. Iran and the film looks beautiful, but the slow pace and constant driving could not keep my attention. I was constantly nodding off.
