Iranian movies are mellow and realistic. Started with 'About Elly' and loving all the movies of Golshifteh Farahani.
The culture of the land and customs are told through subtle dialogues in the movie. According to Persian mythology, the patience stone is of a stone one shares all the secrets, pains and it shatters relieving the suffering. Her husband becomes her patience stone and rest is an interesting story.
Brilliant writing as well as direction. Atiq Rahimi created a piece that's as intriguing as well as dramatic.
Composer of the movie Max Richter composed well. His good decision to make the most of the movie silent is what emphasizes the small bits and pieces of music impactful. Loved it.
