Dariush Mehrjui based this 1993 Iranian film on Ibsen's A Doll's House. A woman sews quietly at night, ruining her eyesight, to pay off the debt she's secretly incurred to cure her husband's cancer, only to be blackmailed by the lender. The husband is both outraged and blind to his wife's considerable sacrifice, which sparks the wife's own feminist awakening as she realizes how little he values her humanity. The script and camera work do little more than manipulate our sympathies in favor of the wife. With Niki Kirimi and Amin Tarokh.
