Tehran has no Pomegranate is a documentary that refers to fall in both its name and its text. The fall of a city that seems to be progressing but not in the real sense. The humor narrative style can be called real humorous category, so you have to cry in this situation, but it laughs because of its type. Tehran has no pomegranate narratives. It is a satirical narrative of what is happening to us. From the hot history to today. Our course is in a way that we can not yet specifically claim that we have succeeded. A documentary line with reports and humorous templates announces these signs. Even in a particular narrative of our condition and livelihood we are in paradox. The biography of Ja'far is a good example of this claim, from the first to the end of the story of Jafar, and the turning point of the good from bad to bad, from bad to awful, awful towards good, and finally, Ja'far's wish for This is a matter of bringing his family to Tehran one day; Tehran is a good place !!! The paradox in the movie in narrative and courage in comparing classes and collecting various subject information is another striking feature of the film in terms of effectiveness. The mention of the film is also unique in its history and manner of presentation and writing, so that it transmits it to the audience as well as its subtext. Congratulations by Delay to dear Massoud Bakhshi and his team to make a fascinating documentary in which our story is actually narrated and puts us in our chair. hope to returning the Pomegranately days to Tehran.
