Kissing the Moon-Like Face - Boosidane Roye Mah (2012)|
Date of birth:
14 February 1958, Isfahan, Iran
Homayoun Assadian gives us a film that speaks with deep knowledge of the long, ineradicable scars of war, of Iran today, and of loss and friendship.
Two elderly women, friends and neighbours for decades, both had their sons go MIA in the Iran-Irag War many years ago.
Now, the authorities have purportedly found the remains of one… How will this affect their friendship? -- VIFF
This Iranian home-front drama comes from filmmaker Homayoun Assadian, whose last film, 2010’s Gold and Copper, showed a similar domestic focus on the daily lives of Iranians as they deal with universal human grievances and glories, all while struggling with the unique qualities of life in modern Iran.
As this news arrives, so comes another morbid revelation: the partial remains of Etherem’s son have been recovered. Etherem hatches a plan that will, in the perverse postwar world she shares with her longtime friend Forugh, perhaps bring the women some kind of peace. Assadian gives us a film that speaks with deep knowledge of the long, ineradicable scars of war, of Iran today, and of loss and friendship. -- VIFF
