On Iran's Underground Hipsters. Literally.
Iranian director Bahman Ghobadi ("A Time for Drunken Horses"; "Turtles Can Fly") has a new film, which he co-wrote with his fiancée, journalist Roxana Saberi, about an indie rock band.
It's definitely a different spin on Iranian film and will surely pull young and curious music lovers to check it out. I doubt that it isn't still a tear jerker though. Iranian films are the best at that.
