The importance of the symbolic and metaphoric narration of the cinema which constitute the basic narration by using images is unquestionable. Iranian Cinema is renowned for its ingenious use of metaphorical expression in the world, and since the Iranian Islamic Revolution, it presents the problems of the women experience in the family and society in the context of metaphorical narration because of these reasons Iranian Cinema has been included in the scope of the study. This study aims to reveal the importance of mirror metaphor in Modern Iranian Cinema. In this context, Women’s Themed Political Films in the Modern Persian Cinema like The Apple (1998), Hidden Half (2001), Baran (2001) and Fireworks Wednesday (2006) films including a metaphorical relationship between woman and mirror were investigated by using qualitative analysis method in this study.
