82 mins | Jafar Panahi | Iran | 2015 | PG, offensive language
Pretending to be a taxi driver negotiating the streets of Tehran, the internationally acclaimed filmmaker makes a fascinating movie about his own role as a forbidden storyteller and life in Iran today.
Winner of the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival 2015.
“A priceless cinematic lesson, proving once again that if you know what you want and how to express it, the whole mystical paraphernalia of filmmaking and its inflated budgets is not really necessary… More than ever before, Panahi’s composite picture of contemporary Iranian reality puts on a satirical shape, but the melancholy smile on the driver’s face – and in this case driver and director are one and the same person – is more eloquent than any piece of dialogue.” — Dan Fainaru, Screendaily
