Powerful and touching story with multiple dimensions are squeezed in ten minutes melodrama
23 December 2010 | by samanjSee all my reviews

In her second short movie, Kurdish female director Chiman Rahimi trying to analyse deeper problems that is facing some of us, how do you deal with your past? A young Kurdish woman is facing a challenge when she is confronted by her past. After fleeing Iran and starting new life in London one day through unforeseen event she confronts her past. Pains and nightmares of her past hunting her with agonising thoughts on how she can deal with it. Powerful and touching story with multiple dimensions are squeezed in ten minutes melodrama that keeps the audience engaged from start to finish. Rojin is a tale of the victory of spirit of foreignness over animosity and desire to revenge. The movie is well edited and cleverly shot and acting of the cast is wonderful.
