    Kilroy says very cool!

    I could not understand some of the rythems in the context of the dancers who seemed to move to the beat of a different drummer at times. Very many interesting voices come out of the same instrument.

    Very beautiful. Especially the whirling excercises.

    To be honest, I haven’t seen the movie my self! Just saw a pictures, few comments about this movie suggest that it was filmed sometimes in the 60 or 70’s.
    The zoorhanehs have given birth to many champions – pahlavan, sometimes world champs in wrestling and weight lifting.
