The rare early Kiarostami film made outside of Kanoon, and one of the most downbeat of his features, this adult drama concerns a civil servant besieged on two fronts: he’s accused
 of taking bribes, and his marriage is collapsing (Kiarostami 
has admitted this latter element was autobiographical). Full of pre-revolutionary disquiet, the film features future star Shohreh Aghdashloo as the wife.
