A review describes ifilm weekend flick ‘The Faithful Day’ as "the most notable film" on the sad religious occasion of Ashura.
According to the review, while the flick directed by Shahram Asadi was made almost fifteen years ago, no film has ever proved to be as impressive as ‘The Faithful Day’.
The title which grabbed the best film award at Fajr Film Festival boasts a string of stars such as the male lead Alireza Shoja-Nouri and mega actor Ezzatollah Entezami with the latter passing away a while back.
The review lauded Shoja-Nouri’s performance who played the role of a newly converted Muslim hearing Imam Hussein’s (AS) call for help at the Battle of Karbala.
The male actor was quoted by the rave review as saying, “I have seen so many people telling me they watched the film more than a hundred times.”
The actor also said he himself caught the film so many times with every time feeling a drastic change of mood.
“This work is not in religious or historical genre and the audience can relate to it.”
