Goofs

When Isaac is put against a concrete wall to be shot (but purposely missed just to scare him), the bullet holes in the wall around him are clearly made by explosive squibs inside the wall, not by bullets hitting it from the outside. See more »

Septembers of Shiraz, what a great movie.
26 June 2016 | by Constait90See all my reviews

This film expertly captures what it must be like to have your life suddenly turned around into total chaos, the hopelessness, the helplessness, and the despair..." Based on true events of the 1979 Iranian Revolution.

Adrien Brody is notorious for diving deep into the most harrowing aspects of the human condition and his role as Isaac in Septembers of Shiraz is no different. , Isaac is tested physically, emotionally and spiritually; how far would you go to save your family? How would you react?

Great emotional movie.
