Aro Favourite Circle, The


Iran 2000, 87 minutes
Dir. Jafar Panahi
In Farsi with English subtitles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama


Aroview: Banned its native Iran, this compendium of linked stories circumscribes the various oppressions women must suffer under that country’s strict social and religious codes governing divorce, abortion, prostitution and birth of male heirs.

Shot on the run, as the narrative baton is based from tale to tale, this possesses an entirely different energy from most Iranian cinema, with a panicked immediacy that’s also a far cry from the dir.’s former hit, THE WHITE BALLOON.
