The great names in cinema
| 100 minutes | 2018
Once again, the Iranian filmmaker defies his officially-imposed house arrest and filming ban to deliver a portrait of three women in today’s Iran. Using the bare-bones resources at his disposal, Panahi cobbles together a fascinating road movie with an isolated mountain region as its destination. The film stars Panahi himself and actress Benhaz Jafari as they set out to find a young girl married against her will and forcibly removed from school by her parents. In many ways reminiscent of his previous film, Taxi Téhéran (2015), this new opus is a tender, unsentimental look at the paradoxes of a changing society.
