Yestarday, I was watching this movie : Dam e Subh (Day Break) : 2005 . I am haf-way into it.

Brief information

"Day Break” is the breakthrough work of director Hamid Rahmanian, writers Mehrdad Kashani and Hamid Rahmanian and lead actor Hosein Yari.

Shot inside Tehran’s century old prison, 'Day Break' is the story of a man awaiting execution.

Unlike previous plots before it, this is an existential tale about the waiting more than the dying.

It is interesting. The main idea was that

According to Islamic law the life of the condemned murderer does not simply end but is put into the hands of the victim’s family. An execution is scheduled and the offended family comes and authorizes the final death, or release, of the prisoner.

If the family doesn’t show up at the appointed time, the execution is cancelled and eventually a new date is set. The situation repeats

Movie was fascinating and intruging :

Of all of the strange and convoluted death penalty laws of the world this touch has to be one of the most elegant. In fact, the victims’ representatives frequently don’t show up on time, apparently content to let the perpetrators live with their conscience a while longer.

If two victims are involved, two families show up on execution day and may openly debate possible forgiveness as the prisoner watches helplessly from the gallows. If the families cannot come to agreement, the tie goes to the death penalty.
