Highly recommended

I usually trust IMDb ratings for movie, and was shocked to find this has been rated 4.5!! I had to open an IMDb account to contest otherwise! I happened to watch this movie on a long haul flight and I enjoyed every minute of this movie. Shift-e-Shab shines light on mental health and social pressures in a sometimes hard Iranian environment. It is a well acted, highly moving film that will keep you on your toes. You really feel the pain and anguish of nahid. The little girl does a fantastic job too. You can really sense the toll the consequences take on the whole family. This movie had me gasping on the plane with emotion. A Farsi gem of a movie.
