Tragedy strikes as a wife and daughter are accidentally killed in a police shoot-out with demonstrators. In an act of vengeance, a young man, randomly kills two police officers. He escapes to the forest, where he is arrested by two other officers. The three men are surrounded by trees, the woods. They are lost in a maze, a desolate landscape, where the boundaries between the hunter and the hunted are difficult to perceive.

I mainly liked this film because it's from Iran! That's right - that evil nation that is causing everyone so much angst these days. The film is OK but it really dose a good job of putting a human face on the Iranian population that everyone wants to demonize. Check it out!

Worth watching for the cinematography.

Tragedy strikes an Iranian husband and father and it may well have been caused by the police, who seem indifferent to his plight. In these circumstances, some people retaliate and some try to rebuild their lives. The choice is interesting, if the person is a sharpshooter. This movie has elements of the American movies "The Sniper (1952)”' and "The Last Detail." The action could be taking place in America where too many people try to solve their problems with guns. This movie is probably being released in the USA because Rafi Pitts, the director and main actor, currently plays an Iranian role in the Ben Affleck blockbuster "Argo."
