Anxiety and worry fall heavily during the winter like snow blanketing the land, but disappear like the spring wind when flowers start to bloom. The deeply set wrinkles on an 80-year old lady shepherd’s face resemble the Alborz range as if it represents her life of surrendering to God and nature, as well as the rocky course she has taken. The camera captures the old lady’s life as she abandons the mountains during the season change to spend the winter in her village, and then go back up the mountains when spring comes. But most importantly, the film follows her as she grumbles about her unfortunate life and her heartless children. And this is why the last scene of the film feels like a confession. (H.Jay LEE)
