Movie Info

In this Iranian romantic fantasy, an elderly married couple (Hossein Moharami, Roghieh Moharami) head to the river to wash their gabbeh, a traditional Persian carpet with a colorful illustration of a young woman woven into it. Suddenly, the figure in the design (Shaghayegh Djodat) springs miraculously to life, declares herself to be called Gabbeh, and then spins a story about her history, her family and the man she loved but was forbidden to marry.

Audience Reviews for Gabbeh

  • Apr 07, 2017
    It is an absorbing film, much like a surreal visual poem that couldn't be more cinematic in the way it is told, sustained exclusively on its editing (and the endless possibilities that it offers to a story like this, including beautiful match cuts) and a dazzling use of colors.
