Deep Breath - Nafas-e amigh (2003)|
Date of birth:
25 November 1962, Tehran, Iran
This wry, whimsical character study from Parvis Shahbazi may be the first cinematic account of the urban slacker phenomenon in Iran.
Mansour Shahbazi and Saeed Amini play a couple of listless twentysomethings, each from opposite ends of the social spectrum but both equally bored with their constricted lives, which seem to consist mainly of aimless driving, melancholy reflection and the occasional bout of petty crime.
When the boys pick up a vivacious young hitchhiker (Maryam Palyzban), her dynamic presence begins to rouse them from their terminal ennui.
Punctuated with beautiful imagery and comic moments to leaven its examination of a generation adrift, DEEP BREATH is a sympathetic yet unsparing picture of disaffected Iranian youth.
