Narges Abyar, who wowed audiences with Track 143 two years ago, was back with Nafas, a tale of four young siblings living with their father through the Revolution and the Iran-Iraq war. The child actors, especially Seyedeh Sareh Nour Mousavi, were a delight and Abyar’s attempt to depict Iran’s most tumultuous years through the eyes of children is an effort that has not been made. But the film was too long and left viewers wondering how children could stay looking exactly the same year after year.
