Movie Info

Shot in secret and smuggled out of Iran, There is No Evil is an anthology film comprising four moral tales about men faced with a simple yet unthinkable choice -- to follow orders to enforce the death penalty, or resist and risk everything. Whatever they decide, it will directly or indirectly affect their lives, their relationships, and their consciences. Says director Mohammad Rasoulof: "As responsible citizens, do we have a choice when enforcing the inhumane orders of despots? As human beings, to what extent are we to be held responsible for carrying out those orders? Where does the duality of love and moral responsibility leave us?" Suspenseful, mysterious, and shot through with a sense of urgency, Rasoulof's film is an incisive look at the moral strength and inner humanity of its protagonists.

Critic Reviews for There Is No Evil

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (37) | Rotten (1)

  • To make a movie that ponders the moral rot of an unjust system while under the gun of that unjust system is courageous and artistically potent.

  • [W]hen juxtaposed against a history of Iranian cinema that has often relied on child-centric allegory and non-specific narrative to make its societal critiques, [it] practically blisters with the intensity of specifically living in Iran... now

    May 15, 2021 | Full Review…
  • A powerful work of moral courage and urgency.

    May 14, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It's a comparatively solid quartet of short films that critically examine the country's dehumanizing system of capital punishment, putting a human face on the citizen-executioner asked to carry out the all-too-frequently enacted death penalty.

    May 13, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The film's as compassionate as it is unsettling, and as provocative as it is poignant.

    May 12, 2021 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
  • Rasoulof's aesthetic is plain and practical; his sense of drama has the revelatory power of documentary.
