CLOSED CURTAIN

CLOSED CURTAIN

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
Back in our cinemas with his charming, Cannes Best Screenplay-winning road movie 'Three Faces', we're rewatching Jafar Panahi's 'Closed Curtain' - his second film to be made in defiance of the state and winner of the Berlin Silver Bear for Best Script. They are both on the run: the man with the dog he is not allowed to own because Islamic law deems it to be unclean, and the young woman who took part in an illicit party on the shores of the Caspian Sea. They barricade themselves in a secluded villa with curtained windows and eye each other suspiciously. Why has he shaved his head? How does she know he is being followed by the police? They are now prisoners in a house without a view in the midst of a hostile environment. The voices of police can be heard in the distance, but so too can the calming sound of the sea. ★★★★ "Jafar Panahi’s troubling film, again made in secret in defiance of the state, is part allegory and part Pirandellian fantasy" - Mark Kermode, The Observer ★★★★★ "Heady, emotional, provocative and invigorating" - Keith Uhlich, Time Out
