Roya More than 1 year ago
I am very disappointed with the quality of this film. While the film attempts to cover both the life of Googoosh and the historical context of her popularity, it fails enormously!

The film lacks a central narrative voice and uses badly edited video clips to make weak points. The film seems to have the quality of a beginner high-school film class student. Please do not buy this film, you would learn more about the life of Googoosh from Wikipedia.
