Modest Reception2012

  • 3.5
Leila and Kaveh are a mysterious pair from Tehran, traveling the mountainous countryside in their Lexus coupe to push big bags of money on the locals. This turns out to be not so easy, but fascinating to watch, as the cagey couple invent increasingly brazen stratagems to place cash in the hands of the wary, proud or indifferent. Will they push things too far? Are they losing sight of their mission? What exactly is their mission? Led by riveting performances from Taraneh Alidoosti and writer-director Mani Haghighi, this bold comedy-drama unfurls with unexpected force amid subtle themes of power, privilege and corruption.

Slow moving film about a couple driving around the outskirts of Teheran handing over large amounts of money to whomever had the good fortune to come i not contact with them. Throughout the film, I was waiting for some kind of understanding, or some sort of reasoning for this, and ultimately, the viewer is given one, however, to base the whole film around this one idea or concept leaves the viewer wondering if they missed something or not.
