Modest Reception - Paziraie sadeh (2012)|
Date of birth:
1969, Tehran, Iran
Vahid Moghadasi (sound)
"Starts as a
top-notch black comedy, and segues into something darker still and very serious,
without ever missing a beat." – FilmInk
A man with his arm in a cast who
thus resembles Napoleon and a well-dressed woman are making their way through a
war-torn mountainous region in an SUV.
The boot of the car contains
plastic bags filled with money to distribute to the needy people they encounter
on their journey.
But are the two of them really on a charitable
mission or are we watching a duplicitous game of temptation and morality?
Winner of the NETPAC prize at this year’s
“This original, sophisticated film reminds us once again of the continued
vitality of the Iranian film industry.” – Screen
