Actor-director Hamid Jebelli (
Son of Maryam
) offers a charming portrait of a mentally challenged man looking for love in a world that largely ignores him. Feeble-minded Reza works at a bridal shop where he transports wedding dresses on his old, rickety bicycle. Reza spends his time communing with his long-dead mother at the cemetery, or with a dress mannequin in the shop window. One day, not long after the mannequin loses its head, Reza's life changes when a beautiful woman, accompanied by her maid, arrives at the store looking for bridal veils. "A sweet-natured Iranian film of considerable charm and humor" (
Los Angeles Times
). In Farsi with English subtitles.
