A girl believing in god is in love with
an atheist. They decide to spend their honeymoon in India. So they start
their adventure in .
Scream of the Ants could be described as
Makhmalbaf's philosophies on life, religion and sex set against a series
of visual tableaux. The "story" as such concerns a young Iranian couple
who have journeyed to India to find "The Complete Man". Along the way,
the couple, and a string of other characters, offer us pieces of
Makmalbaf's philosophies. As an example, a driver taking the couple to
see the Complete Man muses:"If you go by car to visit The Complete Man,
you can have a good view; but if you go by foot, you'll have a vision."
Well, if you find something profound in that, then you're likely to
enjoy this film. Otherwise, it can be a very slow ride.
