Iranian filmmaker Iraj Tahmasb is the writer, director, and co-star for the comedy Dokhtare Shirini Fouroush (The Pastry Girl). Tahmasb plays the weakling Saeed who is pushed around by his father, Aghajoun (Hamid Jebeli). Saeed wants to marry the pastry girl Niloo (Fatemeh Motamed Aria), but their families hate each other. After several schemes, sabotages, and a misplaced dowry, a fight breaks out at the wedding ceremony. Dramatic actress Sorayya Ghasemi plays Niloo's widowed mother, Mrs. Rostami. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
Az Kenar-e Ham Migozarim
This variation on the road movie follows four separate carloads of people as they simultaneously traverse the same highway from Tehran to the Caspian Sea: a widow and a woman who had an affair with her husband; a widower and his terminally ill son; a film critic and his rebellious sons; and a hearse driver with a dark sense of humor. Their stories occasionally intersect, but the film is for the most part devoted to the individual dramas unfolding in each vehicle and developing them into a larger meditation on travel as a metaphor for life. ~ Tom Vick, Rovi
