This was a highly ambitious Iranian film following the lives of several
women in 1950s Iran. It may be of interest to American viewers in that
the backdrop to the movie is the 1953 coup, where the CIA, in support
of an absolute monarch (the Shah), helped overthrow a democratically
elected government. That assumes that anyone is still interested in
finding out "why the world hates America", I think it's become passé to
ruminate on that now. But if you flick CNN on and see the latest
wranglings with Iran, well here is where the story started, it's a good
idea not to start reading at chapter 56.
The main focus of the film though is the treatment of several Iranian
women by the society in which they live, and their retreat to a magical
garden without men. It's an awesomely ambitious adaptation of a famous
novel of the same name by Shahrnush Parsipur (who has a cameo
appearance as the brothel madam). It's not particularly successful, I
don't like saying that, but I think even Shirin Neshat, who was present
for the screening was not happy with the finished article, which took a
very long time to film. She has simply tried to weave too many strands.
The most successful story perhaps is of the young prostitute Zarin, who
is anorexic and actually played very well by a Hungarian actress,
Orsolya Tóth. It's no surprise to me that Neshat actually made a 20
minute short starring the same actress in 2005 called Zarin, which was
very well received.
In the Women Without Men, Zarin, who runs away from a brothel is seen
furiously rubbing her body raw in some public baths. She speaks not a
single word in the whole movie, and that is the most effective
condemnation of the society she lives in.
We can see some of the terrible attitudes prevailing then and perhaps
now as well about women. Amir Khan (played very ably by Essa Zahir) at
one point approaches one of the women (Faezeh played by Pegah Ferydoni)
and gives her this line about how women are flowers who blossom and
then wither. He then asks her to become his second wife; his first
wife, who has withered, will "of course" become her servant. Khan has
absolutely no idea of the level of misogyny he's communicating. One of
the women is a general's wife, her husband ends an incredibly oafish
rant with an order for her to come and eat some melon because he wants
her to. In the movie we see a distillation of the unfortunate
insensitivities to which a group of Iranian women have been subjected.
It's important to note that it would be an overreaction to condemn
Iranian male society en masse.
It's a very beautiful movie, the garden of the villa that the general's
wife sets herself up in after a very scandalous separation, is really
very magical and shot wondrously. I was worried that the movie was
getting a bit lost in it's quest for aesthetic perfection, and thusly
becomes almost soporific. The stories of the different women became a
bit cacophonic, there was no unison message. It's got to be pretty
unbalanced as well, men are almost uniformly comedy sketch buffoons,
the women martyrs.
