Wandering in Search of a Common Point / Mehrzad Danesh’s Review of “Forty Seven”
23 April 2018 - 15:30
“Forty seven” is an episodic film that its narration is based on issue of middle-aged women of three different social classes. This idea has been repeated many times. But it seems that the problem of woman in this movie it’s not racketed to their age and it would be happened in other situation. For example a woman leaving a home because her husband bad behavior, doubting her husband in connection with another woman, or physical violence and beatings, the issues are not limited to middling age of the woman and it can happen to others. For this reason the film is searching for the common point between its wandering stories, and as if it goes on this uncertainty is even greater. The problem of the film is not only in the unity of the subject, but also in a narrative structure that does not have a definite pattern. In the third episode of the movie, it’s suddenly change, and the narrative is slow and linear Becomes a space full of referrals to the past and time-spans and eliminates the coherence of the narrative.
