Thanks to the nice guy who recommended me this one!
This one is highly unusual…in many ways.
First of all, it is from an Iranian TV show, and thereby the first scene I watched from that country…and I think it’s the same for most of you here as well.
I thought about presenting it here at all, but in the end, the filmmakers are not responsible for the actions of the government, so I decided to make a post.
Especially it offers quite a lot.
Let’s start with some pictures:

Here is the video:
Ok, a real rollercoaster ride for me.
Let’s start with the bad aspects. It’s a soap opera with a language I don’t understand. So, I don’t have any connection to these characters. Who are they? What do they want? Why are they doing this? That certainly “damages” the impact of the scene quite a big time as they are just random people to me.
How great would it be if I would actually know these women and would really care about them?
Also, that weird nightmare scene with the bad CGI looks just awful.
On the bright side, we have 11(!) women who mask themselves rob a bank, and then unmask themselves afterward!!! The quantity of masks and unmaskings is just awesome. Never seen anything like that.
I also like that they really take their disguises very seriously, most of them are wearing more than one mask or piece of disguise.
The self unmasking in the end is very nice! Of course, I would have wished for some security guards who would be curious to take a peek under these masks…. 😉
I don’t get why they need 11 women to rob that place as normally you have something like 3-5 in most movies.
But ok, I am sure these 11 are connected by some background story….
Wanna know from which TV show this is?
