Love does not appear in a romantic garb in the Blue-Veiled but is assessed as a necessary element to perpetuate and invigorate life. In this film one must feel the bitterness of alienation and the bliss of love and sympathy. One must know that Nobar (meaning a new fruit in Farsi) is really a new fruit in life. This love episode erupts at a time that Nobar is wrecking her brains to manage her life because her mother has been jailed and she is trying to stop his brother from becoming another drug addict.
In Boycott the woman endures all difficulties but in the meantime she builds the character of the man. When her husband is taken to prison for political reasons, she supports her husband and during her absence she respects the sanctity of her house. In the first episode of the Peddler the woman in the film is really living and breathing. In this film the poverty and oppressive nature of a woman who wants to lay her child in the road in order to save her sick child is manifest though in the end motherly sympathy overcomes such a motive and she doubles her efforts to find her child.
In his `By Love Stricken' and `Mother', Ali Hatami shows a new perspective about women. A mother who is dying, summons her children to her house so that she can spend her last days with them. Upon relating her recollections, the five children who have remained estranged and discordant gradually forget their difference and improve their ties until another man appears in the scene. The children are surprised to see an Arab among them. But their mother informs them that the boy is their father's son during his exile south of the country. The children learn that the mother had found a wife for their father during his imprisonment in the south so that he would not feel lonely and the son is the fruit of the second marriage. The sisters and brothers who are just becoming intimate with each other gradually communicate with their new brother and the mother who is an example of an Iranian devoted mother and manages to solve the difference among his disunited children, listens to their complaints in a manner that gradually she is forgotten among the episodes. 2b1af7f3a8
