Best film of Shanghai film festival and an award-winner of Fajr film festival, Castle of Dreams is another social drama by Reza Mirkarimi, the director of “Cube of Sugar” and “As simple as that”. This road movie chronicles the story of a dysfunctional family unit headed by Jalal (Hamed Behdad), his tense but evolving relationship with his children (Sara and Ali) and social tensions engulfing them. The young casts wonderfully acted by Niyousha Alipour and Yuna Tadayyon project the stressful life of lower-class family from usually neglected children perspective, a quality film to watch and reflect.
