I loved it -- it's a very cute movie that does what it intended to do...it educates the general population on that aspect of the Persian culture.

Even the stuff going on in the background is humorous. The short film is very well put together and you catch something new every time you watch it. My roommates and I have watched it several times and don't get tired of it.

Catherine Bell adds star quality as she does in anything she's in. This is a must for any true fan of the talented actress, though the part is a lot different from anything she's ever done before.
