Movie Info

Politics unwittingly help bring two people together while also driving them apart in this independent romantic drama from director David Dusa. Anahita (Alice Belaidi) is an Iranian college student in her early twenties who has relocated to Paris at the insistence of her parents. Anahita was part of the pro-democracy movement that sprung up in the wake of the 2009 presidential elections in Iran, and her family fears for her safety. Anahita uses her laptop computer and cell phone to stay in touch with what's happening at home, but when she meets Gecko (Rachid Youcef), a fellow Iranian exile and internet aficionado who works at a Parisian hotel, he's immediately smitten and tries to use his many YouTube videos documenting his dancing skills to impress her. However, while Anahita likes Gecko, she's troubled by his lack of political commitment and seems too caught up in events in Iran to truly live in the here and now. Fleurs de Mal (aka Flowers of Evil) was an official selection at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival.
