"Macbeth meets Romeo and Julia in this stinging portrait of rigid marriage rituals in Iran", wrote Variety about this impressive Iranian drama which tackles themes such as tradition, corruption, greed and love. The Bride is part of a new trend in Iranian cinema, in which the female (lead) is a powerful figure who keeps her erring husband on the straight and narrow. The film was made for a large audience and was Iran's biggest box office hit of all time.
