Deserted Station, an Iranian film

Another film "caught" at the circulation desk.

You've seen her in other middle eastern films, and you know she is a wonderful actress.

This is a very poignant story about loss, in very many subtle ways.  Loss of family, loss of direction, loss of one's national heritage.

Filmed in a bleak area of Iran, yet the bleakness is the beauty of it.

The only "down" side to this film, the subtitles are sometimes impossible to read as they appear next to the sands of the desert. If you understand Farsi, it will be no  problem
