CHF 19.00 / EUR 17.00

Invited to teach a semester in his native Iran, Professor Arash returns home for the first time in two decades, and quickly finds himself drawn into the subtle and sinister machinations being played out in his corrupt family. An astute new voice in Iranian cinema, director Massoud Bakhshi premiered his cinematic debut to acclaim at Directors' Fortnight at this year's Cannes, showcasing a suspenseful, multi-layered film: a psychological family drama, a slow-burn thriller and a caustic critique on the darkness afflicting Iranian society.

«Blends suspense and social commentary to deliver an acerbic commentary on today's Tehran... it's Bakhshi's screenplay and its deft execution which are the stars of A Respectable Family Screen International
