The Stoning of Soraya M. (2008)
why they don't at least research about a subject before making a movie about it?
almost the worst movie I've seen in ages! not talking about the poor atmosphere and poor acting which are ridiculously trying to show black/white characters,but also this movie lacks reason. as a lawyer who has master degree in criminal law,I should say real stoning has almost no similarity with what we see in this movie.of course I'm against this humiliating punishment,but it doesn't mean I approve all of the lies in this movie about Islamic rules. just as a little example,in the movie it's said Soraya should bring 4 witnesses in order to prove her innocence!blah blah!in Iran like any other place I know,it's to the complainant (and in criminal cases the court also) to prove somebody's guiltiness. just an advice to the director:just research before making a movie about a subject.that's what every professional director does.refer to article 63 to 97 of the Islamic punishment code of Iran.it's even available online! the weakness points of this movie are almost uncountable!did you notice all of the men are bad?you can't at least find one good man there.on the other hand Soraya is flawless in this ugly world and Zahra(Shohreh Aghdashloo who has played her weakest role ever) is the brave woman who's trying to help her.what's the point of all of these feminism? I almost forgot to say:in some scenes I couldn't stop laughing when I heard Soraya speaking Persian with English accent about the very obvious goals of the movie which were supposed to impress the audience!
