Movie Info

Arash T. Raihi directed this compassionate drama of disparate characters fleeing their homeland in search of freedom. Merdad (Pourya Mahyari) and Ali (Navid Akhavan) are two friends in their late teens who are helping their young cousins Azy (Elika Bozorgi) and Arman (Sina Saba) make their way from Iran to Austria, where they're supposed to meet up with their parents. However, since the children don't have visas, Merdad and Ali are looking for a way to cross the boarder without being noticed. En route, they meet Lale (Behi Djanati Atai) and Hussan (Payam Madjlessi), a couple seeking political asylum in Europe who are also traveling with a youngster, their son Kamran (Kian Khalili). In the town of Ankara, they meet a man who would be happy to help them cross into Austria -- for a price. However, they also learn tracking down potential illegal immigration into Europe is popular with the local authorities, and discover enemies at every turn. Meanwhile, the travelers make the acquaintance of Abbas (Said Oveissi) and Manu (Fares Fares), a pair of locals who have long supported the Iranian opposition and offer whatever advice they can to those trying to flee the country. Ein Augenblick, Freiheit (aka For A Moment, Freedom was honored at the best first feature film at the 2008 Montreal International Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
