The film has become a new experience in Iranian cinema, which can keep itself alive as a cult film in the memory of its audience. The film with such a potential, in a few cases, has done mischief that does not fit into the professional and technical framework of the work at all.

The peak of these small mischiefs can be defined in the sequence of gathering of workers in front of the factory and the way the security forces deal with them.

Of course, the film’s advantages do not end there: the film, due to the abundance of interior spaces, has an intelligent cinematography that does not tire the audience despite the long time. The mise-en-scènes are well closed and the sequences, despite the darkness of most of the scenes and the signal that a blind character gives to his audience, are not annoying or boring.
