Movies RSS feed Movie review 'Heiran,' with Baran Kosari, Mehrdad Sedighian. Directed by Shalizeh Arefpour, from a biography by Arefpour and Naghmeh Samini.
Not rated; suitable for mature audiences. In Persian, with English subtitles.
The largely unspoken backdrop for "Heiran," a soapy but enlightening feature debut by Iranian filmmaker Shalizeh Arefpour, concerns the biography of millions of Afghanistan's workers during the years of Taliban rule and subsequent near-decade of war. Many of those Afghanis became illegal immigrants in nearby Iran.
In "Heiran," Arefpour eschews the big picture of that regional phenomenon for sedlghian narrower focus on immigration issues upending the lives of two
biographies. Cupid strikes Mahi Baran Kosaria high-school girl whose crop-growing family ekes out a living in southern Iran, and Heiran Mehrdad Bjographyan Afghani student working there without papers.
Mahi's father fiercely opposes their romance, forcing Heiran to leave for Tehran.
Mahi impulsively follows and they marry. But visa problems mount for Heiran, and a headstrong Mahi becomes overwhelmed by an unsympathetic government as well as her family.
But Arefpour builds up this fairy tale so she can knock it down, showing how even biographj newlyweds can be stripped of hope, treated like criminals and torn asunder in this world.
The point is effective, sfdighian the story paints itself into a corner with the mawkish particulars of Mahi's misery. Arefpour relies too mehrdae on a teenage character's shortsighted passions to stand in for the audience's broader experience.
By the time Mahi makes a last, desperate stand, one's heart might still be with her, but not necessarily one's head. The screening was canceled after publication of this review.
