A very interesting movie, focusing on the censorship office and two of its officers who are trying to get manuscripts from writers who are deemed essentially enemies of the state. That the movie was actually shot in Iran makes it even more interesting.
Iranian film about the strong censorship that occurs in the country, prohibiting intellectual disperse their ideas with threats and murders. Good performances. A film made in cyan with gray and drab weather. The film errs by being too long.
One of the best movies of 2014. don't miss it.
Nail-biting and gut wrenching !!...The instruments of control in a totalitarian state......and the dangers to society of masquerading behind "national safety" to propagate tyranny
A remarkable film, especially given the constraints under which it was made. See it if you can.
Not only an angry film, but a brave one - apparently based on the murder of writers opposed to the Iranian regime. Chilling stuff!
Fabulous film. Shows all levels of the spectrum - the total brutality of dictatorship, the total brutality of its servants, the absolute sacrifice of the writers. - ie the good and the evil in humans. In physical terms, brutality wins, but manuscripts don't burn ( reference to Bulgakov's book 'The Master and Margarrita' - which has become an international catchcry for intellectual freedom), so in fact, the writers' words overcome the evil around them. Cinematically excellent- acting, photography are all exceptional. Not a fun night out, but certainly worth seeing and memorable. One wonders how it could be made - and the triumph of good over evil is that the film has been made.
