The shared burden of guilt is incisively examined in "No Date, No Signature," a compelling drama by Iranian filmmaker Vahid Jalilvand.
The execution on display here posits Jalilvand as among Iran's most assured directors to have emerged in this decade.
In the dog-eat-kennel times we're living in now, No Date, No Signature presents a story of flawed but generally decent people trying to put right what went so horribly wrong.
An absorbing illustration of how minor actions and bad decisions can amplify one another (and have ripple effects of their own)...
Lensed with great sensitivity and style and superbly acted, it has one drawback for Western audiences in its perplexing plot points based on the local culture and customs.
A handsomely made, exceptionally well-played drama that largely works despite a few significant plot holes.
The journey towards the conclusion is a rollercoaster of raw emotion that deftly lays bare the fragility of humanity.
Vahid Jalilvand's film is so worked out that you know that every nuance is pointed and intentional.
In a landscape often coldly desaturated by the camera, the plot is secondary to the gripping performances. The scene where an angry, grieving Moosa goes to a factory to confront someone he blames is a scarifying tour-de-force.
It's another fine example of the kind of painfully honest cinema being produced in that part of the world.
A dark character piece that studies issues of responsibility in a country suffocated by legalities, and offers more than a few powerful performances.
Writer/director Vahid Jalilvand straddles both worlds as he weaves this complex psychological drama, showing sympathy for all his characters.
