Aucun ours (No Bears)
Two parallel love stories in which the partners are thwarted by hidden, inevitable obstacles, the force of superstition, and the mechanics of power.
With his latest film, made while he was still on conditional release just before his imprisonment in Iran for “propaganda against the regime”, Jafar Panahi presents a film of rare intelligence. He delivers a funny and tragic testimony on freedom of expression, on the need to be heard and on the fate of an entire people.
