باد ما را خواهد برد - Bad ma ra khahad bord

The wind will carry us
(DVD - 2002 - Persian)
Average Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
Bad ma ra khahad bord


Item Details

A group of men from the city traverse the rural Iranian countryside, looking for the village of Siah Dareh, following directions such as "turn left at the big tree on top of the hill," seemingly lost. The driver, respectfully called "Engineer" by the villagers, is in this remote location to record a funeral ritual that will follow the death of a woman reputed to be more than 100 years old. As he waits and she rallies, he becomes a figure of some amusement in the valley--whenever his cell phone beeps, he charges to higher ground in his Land Rover in order to get proper reception. And as he waits to complete his task, he is transformed from a nosy outsider into a reverent observer, seeing all the transient beauty and eternal wonder of the human experience in one poor, small, rural village.

A beautiful and enjoyable film - I'll definitely need to view it again to feel I'm beginning to understand it. Love the scenes of getting a call on the cell phone, appreciate the insight into discreet and indirect communication between 2 people - asking without asking and answering without actually answering.
