Movie Reviews

Multilayered film, full of associations, is also very funny
stevek1833 | San Francisco, CA USA | 06/15/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My wife (who spent most of her life in Iran--and much of her adult life under the current Islamic government) and I (who have never visited Iran) saw this film recently and agreed that it was excellent. It is a "director-making-a-movie" film in the vein of Fellini's "8 1/2" or Allen's "Stardust Memories"--hence full of life/art observations--but contains wry political observations I don't recall in either of these other films. Death is a constant presence here; the director, after not making any films for 20 years, due to the censorship of the regime, is making a documentary on funeral practices in Iran. The deaths of several characters--including the director's own--interweave in ways that are both touching and hilarious. It also introduces the non-Irani viewer to a sense of everyday middle-class life in modern Iran. Don't miss this one! A real gem."
A great film from Iran

"Another award winer film from Iran. Directed by Bahman Farman-ara, this is the story of a man (the director) who has seen most of his close friends have passed away and decides to actually has his funeral while he is alive. A must see film. ..."
