Tehran: City of Love

Friday 22nd November 2019 - Wednesday 27th November 2019

Dir. Ali Jaberansari, Iran/UK, 2018, 102 mins, subtitled. Cast. Forough Ghajabagli, Mehdi Saki, Amir Hessam Bakhtieri. Main Language: Farsi

Three unlucky in love Tehran residents make attempts to change their solo status in this refreshing, original and deadpan tale of the Iranian capital. Three lonely hearts - an ex-champion bodybuilder past his prime, an ice-cream-loving receptionist and a professional funeral singer with a gloomy manner to match - navigate the chilly waters of romance in this darkly funny and subversively queer take on contemporary Iran. With a little Botox here, a relationship seminar there, and a cheerier colour of suit, maybe this hapless trio can transform themselves and finally get their love requited... A darkly funny anti-romance that suggests it’s the absurdity of pursuing love, not its triumphs that really makes us human.
