||Synopsis: A film based on an incredible true story. Desert Dancer is a classic hero story about brave young people risking their lives to rebel against their government and fight for their dreams. Set in Iran, where it is currently forbidden to dance, the story follows Afshin Ghaffarian and his friends who despite the dangers form an underground dance company where, via hacking into YouTube, they learn from the very best - Michael Jackson, Pina Bausch, Gene Kelly and Rudolf Nureyev. Reveling in the freedom of expression that dance gives them, they set upon putting on a performance deep in the desert, away from the watchful eyes of the military police. Written by Anonymous

This is THE movie Islamic countries don't want you to see. This movie
will be banned in Iran. It could not have been filmed in Iran. Everyone
would have been arrested! I expect conservative Muslims to give this
movie low "1" or "2" scores on IMDb to discourage other Muslims from
seeing it. It might give them ideas!
Based upon a true story, it relives the tragic story of a young man and
his friends who simply want to practice and perform modern dancing on
stage in Iran. Dancing is forbidden there.
This is a "quest for freedom" movie; a universally loved theme by
audiences who believe in free speech and freedom to make expressive
choices. It will leave you with a satisfying feeling. A few "twists"
and surprises in the film heighten the tension you will feel. I thought
of Alfred Hitchcock at those moments.
One lone movie critic dismissed this movies' call for Iranian freedom.
I say if an African American from the 1950s were to be recorded looking
and speaking into a camera saying: "I want freedom; Freedom Now!"; Any
movie viewer in America would take this act seriously. Here, this movie
critic simply dismisses the Iranian use of "We Want Freedom Now" as a
platitude or homily! How sad is that? Who's side is this critic on?
One man gave a description of a beating by the Morality Police; and he
spoke about "freedom". The movie critics call this "speaking with
platitudes" and to a movie critic this is a no-no for Iranians. Who is
If a person enjoys beauty and dance, this interest will be a plus to
the further enjoyment and appreciation of this story. This movie should
win an award for "The Most Worthwhile Film of the Year". With the
political motions in the Mid East, this movie sets the viewer straight
that Iranians are a modern people, but Islamic rule creates restricting
conflicts in the souls of their people. What these people do to cope is
laid out in this movie.
Also explored in this film are the social and political aspects. We
walk the streets of Iran and visit an underground society that lives
out alternative lifestyles. This was an eye opener for me because it is
easy to fall into the belief that everyone in Iran goes along with the
"party line". Even with the threat of death and imprisonment, there are
these brave souls that carve out certain alternative ways of living
There is no sex in the movie. Even kissing is prohibited in public in
Iran. The movie shows the Morality Police punishing citizens for being
members of the Green Movement; of citizens holding hands in public, and
other moral violations. I felt relieved to be living in the good old
The direction of the film was well executed. Every scene flowed well
back to back. I was never confused. There were no jumbled ideas or
flash forwards to make it more complicated. It was all straight forward
story telling. The soundtrack was barely noticeable. When I decided to
really listen to the soundtrack, it was emotionally appropriate for the
scene presented. The acting was natural. I saw no "over acting". I
believed every feeling that the actors played out. They were all
sincere. The budget for this movie was $4,000,000.
The main stars are Reece Ritchie and Freida Boniad who also starred in
"Slumdog Millionaire" winning Best Picture of the Year.
What is freedom worth? This film will make you think again about those
freedoms that you take for granted living in America. I would show it
to a class of High School students to give them an introduction to life
in the Middle East. And, because the story revolves around University
level students and their problems and lifestyles, I would think that
people in the ages of 19-35 years would most identify with this film.
But older people who have followed the Mid East conflict will enjoy it
too for this play out of everyday life there. It is for anyone who
would like to visit a foreign country (safely) for a short time.
After seeing this movie, I would never, ever want to live in Iran. They
have these women who check the female University students as they enter
through the front gates of the University for "too much cosmetics" each
morning. They will wipe the face of the student with a cotton pad!
There are Morality Police that look to see that a student is carrying
the "right books" under their arms. They will grab the books out of the
arms of the students to take a look! They trespass into student homes
and search! How demeaning! They prohibit two people from holding hands
in public. Now, this is an eye opener for any High School Student in
America. And yet, the Iranians are computer literate and they drive
modern cars. These contrasts are great ones for American or European
I have a critical eye for dancing and professional visuals. When I say
that this film is good, believe it. The "wow" in this movie is in the
dancing. The "wow" is seen in the conservative customs of this Islamic
I got my monies worth and I do recommend this film to anyone. There is
no bad language; but there is some violence. There are times when you
will be closing your eyes in defense; but there are many more times
that you will be experiencing beauty wrapped delicately in a personal
and tragic story. It has a heartwarming ending.
