80 One. Two. One.

#1 Post by MichaelB » Sun May 12, 2013 4:13 am

In a society where all social customs are based on the beauty of a woman her challenge is to find self confidence and inner beauty despite having lost her physical beauty.

Iranian painter-turned-filmmaker Mania Akbari explores the divide between body and soul against the wholly contemporary background of electronic communication, where love letters are composed on cell phones and close encounters seem far removed for a once-pretty girl who has been disfigured.

Tautly directed and deftly rhythmical, this enthralling film is a showcase for an outstanding ensemble cast. Through a series of episodes, set in locations ranging from a skin-treatment clinic to a fortune-teller s salon to a prison visiting room, a narrative of love, loss and renewal unfolds, centring on a beautiful woman who has been disfigured in an accident. The third feature film directed by Mania Akbari, the star of Abbas Kiarostami's magnificent Ten.

Extras: New HD transfer; Booklet essay by Mark Cousins

A statement by the film's director.

The longest review that I've found.

Released on 24 June, according to Amazon.

I don't know if the extras have been set in stone yet, but I imagine that a great extra if the good people at Second Run could get a copy is Akbari's recent short In My Country Men Have Breasts.

I thought he was Iranian, not Australian.
