The Hollywood Reporter

A dark chronicle of the efforts of an Iranian woman to keep both their freedom and custody of his son and detailing an emotional struggle. With a distant and unhurried style that sometimes recalls the work of Yasujiro Ozu, Panahandeh films her heroine in a series of fixed medium-shots, as if Nahid were incapable of escaping the frame.

Panahandeh shots with veteran conviction the life of her protagonist (...) Being a woman is not easy, but in some countries is even less easier than others.

'Nahid' content to remain at the level of a domestic drama, and although sometimes moves too slow, there is nothing wrong with that. In a country where female filmmakers are even more rare breed in Hollywood (and were, in fact, banned until the 1980s), 'Nahid' is welcome on stage Panahandeh.
