Selected works of
Malek-Motiee (11. April 1930 - 26. Maj
Naser Malek-Motiee is an actor and director, known for Yek Parche
Agha (1965), Jade zarine Samarghand (1968) and Aroos-e dehkadeh (1962).
He was banned from performing in movies since the establishment of Islamic
Regime in 1979 in Iran.
He later shifted onto cinema and made his debut
in 1949 with “Spring Variety", an
episodic film directed by Parviz
“I entered cinema with empty hands and lack of
knowledge and unsupported, but with love. People ignored our mistakes, and it
would be a pity if we do not appreciate them,” Malek-Motiee once
He worked in numerous movies such as “Baba
Shamal” and “Toqi”
Hatami and “Qeisar”
Kimiai. The movies all were produced before the victory of the
Islamic Revolution in 1979.
“The Imperiled”, directed by Iraj
Qaderi in 1982, was the first film Malek-Motiee acted in after the
victory of the revolution.
Afterwards, he faced an unofficial ban due to the new conditions dominating
the post-revolution cinema.
In 2013, he returned to the silver screen in the role of an old man in Ali
Atshani’s family drama “Negar’s
Role” after a 31-year hiatus.
“I cannot describe how pleased I am that I have appeared
in cinema again,” Malek-Motiee said during a ceremony the film crew
organized to celebrate his return.
“I was the bad boy of cinema, who has returned to his
home. I do not know how to express my happiness like that which child
would,” he added.
“Over the years, I was far from cinema. It was like I was
far from my beloved. I always thought about the beloved, and now I do not know
whether the beloved will accept me or not,” Malek-Motiee said.
The movie turned out to be his swansong.
