I saw this on Dec 3, the final night of the Boston MFA Iranian Movie Festival. The auditorium was packed with a mostly Iranian audience. Niki Karimi was there and answered questions afterwards. She's charming and funny, and managed cute well in English.Karimi warned the audience before the begin not to expect a "story", because she is not interested in saying stories. Fair enough. My initial reaction was that the movie lacked not only a storyline but also a point. We see a cycle of scenes of a working girl under stress from a tons of sources. Her reactions remain entirely internal--she remains opaque, revealing nothing interesting about her emotions or her personality. The movie is a set of repeated scenes of her abruptly leaving whomever she happens to be talking to, to receive in her car, drive somewhere, receive out, smoke a cigarette, and receive back in her vehicle again. All while looking miserable. Repeat for 90 minutes.This is too harsh however as there is something to be told for the film, beyond the repetitive plainness. We receive a glimpse of the ordinary life of a modern urban girl in Teheran. There are a several moments of humor.Among the questions somebody asked was why the girl never smiled. Karimi told because she was depressed. Other noted that the camera didn't transport much, and was there a reason for that. Karimi answered because she doesn't like camera movement. Karimi is a sympathetic figure and I think captivated the audience, more perhaps than her movie itself did, with this type of deadpan humor. In the absence of external clues you are left to infer that, even though she took pains to tell that this was not a self-portrait, that she was the source of the same type of deadpan neutral tone that is found in the movie itself. A tone that succeeded in conveying a mood of unresolved desperation, buried deep underneath which might be found a lively, funny spirit. It is also a metaphor of life for modern folks and for girls in particular living in such a repressive society. You are forced to find for meaning in the tiny gestures, in the pauses, in what remains unsaid. A contradictory review is a sign of either a careless review writer, or of a film that's more complex than it seems.
Niki Karimi, a well known and respected actress in Iran, is also a disciple of Abbas Kiarostami and has worked as assistant to him on a several occasions. The influence of the master is clearly evident in Karimi's film: the fixed camera, long takes, folks going in & out of the frame, etc. Karimi's movies however do not possess the depth and Subtlety of Kiarostami's. There are certain similarities between A Several Days Soon and Kiarostami's Ten. Both focus on the plight of girls in Iran. In Ten we learn about the main hero by her conversations with the passengers she took in her car. In Karimi's film we learn about the protagonist, Shahrezad (niki Karimi) by messages left on her smartphone by her husband, her mother, her employer, etc. We learn that she's living separately from her husband, that they have a teenage handicapped son & so on.Karimi tries to present how a woman, living alone in Tehran, can gradually breakdown by the environment around her. The combination of pressure of work, abuse from strangers, falseness of folks and relationships and the over bearing crowd and traffic in Tehran can push any lonely girl over the brink.A Several Days Soon is by no means a masterpiece. It is, however, a quietly observed and well acted portrait of an artist as a young, single girl in today's Iran.
