Last night saw Crimson Gold by the Iranian director Jafar Panahi. Apart from the feeling of the slightly contrived plot being shoved down your throat, the film was overall a pleasant experience. It offered quiet a few amusing moments as well as a nice glimpse of what an every-day life in Teheran could be like. I just wished occasionally that Panahi could learn how to do subtle.
Crimson Gold is a story of an ordinary, good-hearted pizza delivery guy driven to violence and finally suicide by the injustices of Teheran. You think I just gave the plot away? Just go and see the movie.
