Storyline

'When Everybody was Asleep' is the story of Bibi, a well loved, elderly midwife in a small village. When Bibi married, her husband promised to take her on a pilgrimage to Mecca, and, although he never forgot his promise, he passed away before he could keep it. After years of waiting, Bibi finally has the chance to make the pilgrimage, but her advanced age makes the journey more difficult than it ever was before. Written by IMVBox.com

Sham!!!!
11 September 2008 | by pooyan_bashSee all my reviews

This movie quietly puts to shame the majority of junk spewing out of Hollywood. A fat wad of cash thrown at big names and special effects cannot move the human soul like the innocence and sincerity displayed by Hasanpour's cast and direction. It's a shame that there are not more movies like this. . .

Beauty doesn't have to forcibly blow you away. This movie is simply beautiful, and it will blow you away. . . .

I rated this movie ten stars and when you see it you'll do the same.

If you are a moviegoer who has a bias against black and white movies and who has therefore never seen "When Everybody Was Asleep" I pity you.
