Jafar Panahi (‘Crimson Gold’, ‘The Circle’) returns with a delightful road movie, Iranian style, full of delicate metaphors and at times laugh out loud funny.
Well-known actress Behnaz Jafari is distraught by a provincial girl's video plea for help - oppressed by her family to not pursue her studies at the Tehran drama conservatory. Behnaz abandons her shoot and turns to filmmaker Jafar Panahi to help solve the mystery of the young girl's troubles. They travel by car to the rural northwest where they have amusing encounters with the charming folk of the girl's mountain village. But the city visitors soon discover that the protection of age-old traditions is as generous as local hospitality.
Observational, insightful, and ultimately powerful, 3 Faces adds another quietly thought-provoking chapter to writer-director Jafar Panahi's filmography. (Subtitles)
