    hlh. kejepit banyak hal. hhhh :(

  2. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    A little too melodramatic for me. Taraneh Alidoosti is great as a somewhat naive young woman who learns some uncomfortable truths. I really that thing the guy said, "You made me hit you." No, you scumbag, she's too good for you. Making her think she's the crazy one?

  3. dionysus67's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Farhardi's forte, once more put to great service in terms of character development, delivers an intense melodrama that refuses to take for granted stereotypical viewer expectations even when these align with the filmmaker's own perspective. Some genuine cinematic moments derive from the bleu electrique interiors in the bathroom shots, others though are less illustrative of his cinematic skill. Superbly acted piece.

  4. SpacePirate's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Amazing film. So real and moving. One of the best from world cinema in the 00's, certainly as good as the more highly touted Iranian films like A Separation. Must see, really. 5 easy stars

  5. Nick Potter's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Even with this (arguably) being in the lower tier of Asghar Farhadi films, his masterful and truly human storytelling is something to behold and admire in every situation.

  6. Sean Han Tani's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    A firecracker explodes at the hairdresser's feet. In shock, she looks back at the alley where she has just broken off her affair. The man and his car are gone, but there is an older woman trudging with a walker. It made me think, there really is so much we need to do in our relationships relating to communication so that we don't carry anything that may haunt us or others, later, at an older age...

  7. Adam GR's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Iran shows up beautifully on film. Asghar Farhadi's deft vantage creates a prismatically mundane story with characters already spinning in the motion of their lives. Not as entirely revelatory as About Elly, but very strong work, particularly from Hedyeh Tehrani and Pantea Bahram. The elevator shot captures you in disorientation.

  9. Hodek Van Mealstrom's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Drama at its finest. The last minutes feels like you are watching Dekalog XI. Sublime piece.

  10. Kelsey Ramirez's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    I could not help by being so captivated. There was something that was so twisted yet stern when it came to marriage. A strong message, the grass isn't always greener on the other side was clearly stated. Build of the characters brought such a rhythm and sorrow to me. It opens the eyes of how much people don't appreciate what they have and don't realize how there actions effect others.

  12. auloel's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Beautiful ending. How brittle an institute called marriage was.

  13. FISCHER's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Avec un remarquable sens aigu de l'image qui touche, marque, révèle, le metteur en scène nous livre une oeuvre étonnante de vivacité et de pétulance existentielles, avec toujours en filigrane, une critique pertinente et fondée de la société iranienne... www.cinefiches.com

  14. goulton green's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    So many fine moments done in beautiful cinematography, colours and sound. Farhadi comments the absurdity wasteland of human relationships by prolonged scenes voided of acting, filled with incidental sounds and monotony. A scene to offer: Simin's determination to leave diminished with a firecracker exploding under her feet. End feeling: at a quite consent all delusions are to be continued. Masterpiece.

  15. illibelulle's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

  16. Hayat's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    So tense. Fantastic quality as usual from Farhadi and everyone basically.

  17. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Thoroughly absorbing, “Fireworks Wednesday” is anchored in the truthfulness of many men-women relationships. It's a powerful storytelling put up with brilliancy. (4.5 stars)

  18. andrew's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Not quite enough fireworks. Gentle and intereting, with warm characters

  19. misu's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

  20. chazell's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    missed the end of this because it was cut off at midnight, broken tiny heart, it was going great

  21. Ben Dooley's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    A subtle melodramatic love triangle between an upper-middle-class couple and the hairdresser in their apartment block. It has some contrived drama, centred on gaslighting, but also has a playful performance from Alidosti as the working class maid, soon to be married, who sees (and smells) it all, and whose chador becomes part of the intrigue. A carefully framed narrative, full of interesting details of Iranian life.

  22. janh24's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    A very sophisticated melodrama.

  23. Steve G.'s rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Gripping domestic drama that also gives a vibrant and absorbing taste of the chaotic nature of Iranian life in a big city. Beautifully shot and impeccably acted, it's also a razor sharp commentary on marriage. Stunning.

  24. Mike Jempson's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Superb movie. Extraordinary acting, amazing faces. Touching, painful observation of relationships, but what do we ever learn. Let's hope Roohi's marriage works out. Someone, somewhere MUST be happy.
