Frontier Blues (2009)
Developed during his Cannes Film Festival Cinefondation residency, Babak Jalali's droll and empathetic first feature follows a quartet of characters who live in the frontier territories of his own homeland, northern Iran. With its absurdist humour, its resonant images of urban and desert existence and its gentle insight into its characters' idiosyncrasies, Frontier Blues marks a confident launch for an auspicious feature film career.

Critic Reviews for Frontier Blues
It will warm your heart and stretch your mind at the same time, a goal that too many films no longer even see as being a goal.
Flat, plain and stretched out -- like the Gorgan countryside.
Jalali's film takes everything slowly, giving us plenty of time to take in the barren landscape as we wait in vain for anything of significance to happen.
