Fish & Cat - Mahi va gorbeh

Shahram MokriIran – 2013 – More information on this movie

CHF 19.00 / EUR 17.00

A group of students decides to camp on a desolate Caspian region which runs a competition of kite flying during the winter solstice. Not far from the camp, live Babak and Saeed, two grim cooks. Armed with sharp knives, they roam the forest in search of meat to serve the decrepit restaurant they run nearby. The second feature film by Shahram Mokri (premiered in Venice), Fish & Cat is inspired by the true story of a restaurant that served human flesh and its aesthetic proposal is a tour de force: a film shot in a single take (by the director of photography, Mahmoud Kalari), combining formal experimentation and suspense horror film with a sense of humor that is rare in Iranian cinema.



«Brilliantly sustained, Fish & Cat is further evidence of a new generation of filmmakers emerging in Iran.»
