2017, Rambod Javan, Iran, 100 min.
With Negar Javaherian, Mohammad Reza Forutan
Director Javan (NO ENTRY FOR MEN) pulls out all the stops in this genre-bending thriller-melodrama with an over-the-top sense of the surreal. A real estate magnate’s apparent suicide leaves his daughter Negar (Javaherian) both heartbroken and suspicious. The ghost of her father makes regular appearances with clues to his betrayal and murder, while hallucinations, dreams, special effects, and one rotten-tothe-core villain (Mani Haghighi) keep this edgy plot full of surprises. In Persian with English subtitles. DCP digital.
Part of the 28th Annual Festival of Films from Iran.
