(Jafar Panahi, Iran 2018, 100 minutes, subtitles)
With his customary gentle good humour, Iranian director Jafar Panahi delivers another perceptive sideways glance at the contradictions of contemporary Iranian society. After receiving what appears to be a suicide note, Iranian actor Behnaz Jafari (playing herself) sets off to find the distraught girl with her director (Jafar Panahi) as her driver. The plot thickens when they reach the girl’s remote village in Iran’s rural north and find themselves enmeshed in rituals of hospitality and ‘quaint’ local traditions that cover a decidedly myopic worldview. Through a series of often-farcical encounters, Panahi astutely probes the patriarchal customs and how they impact on Iranian women.
