FiC Rating: 4/5
Dir: Mohammad Reza Aslani
Why FiC recommends?
1) A forgotten masterpiece of Iran’s pre-revolution New Wave banned by the Ayatollah Khomeini until its discovery in 2015. This story is of decaying opulence set in a grand old house is a mix of Gothic melodrama and Italian Giallo films.
2) That final scene will leave you gobsmacked, I recommend this to everyone to watch this atleast once, the restored version is an experience not to be missed.
