Refreshments will be served. While reading a novel by Iranian director Mohsen Makhmalbaf on the bus, Ali Sabzian strikes up a conversation with a pretty girl, Mahrokh Ahankhah. When she tells him her family admires Makhmalbaf’s work, Ali pretends to be the filmmaker to impress her.

This brilliant Persian film explores the issue of identity: identity formation, conflicts created in that formation, and ways to address these issues in therapy.

Many  consider Close-Up a masterpiece of world cinema; in 2012 it was voted by critics onto “The Top 50 Greatest Films of All Time” list.
