Leila Hatami in Sadrameli's 'Every Night Loneliness'

"Every Night, Loneliness" is about Atieh, who provides a consultation service for couples calling her at a radio station, where he works. However, she faces a problem with her husband when they travel to Mashhad to visit the holy shrine of Imam Reza (AS).

"This film highlights the difference between a pilgrim and a tourist," Sadr-Ameli said during the award presentation ceremony on October 24.

"When a pilgrim begins the journey he/she tries to be a better man as well as to put away animus and also tries to behave with the good manners of a pilgrim," he added.

Starring Leila Hatami and Hamed Behdad, the movie is the second film of his trilogy, "The City that I Love", all about pilgrims who travel to Mashhad to visit the holy shrine of Imam Reza (AS).

The first part of the trilogy, "The Night" won the Best Feature Film award at the Religion Today 2008.

"Awaiting a Miracle", the last part of the trilogy, is scheduled to begin in Mashhad in early November.
