Taxi Tehran (12)

Director Jafar Panahi. Persian Comedy/Drama


When you are a filmmaker and you are not allowed to direct movies any more, you have to retrain. So why not become a taxi driver? Or better, why not pretend you are a taxi driver and make a film despite everything? This is what Jafar Panahi has done. Now he invites you to get into his cab for the price of a cinema ticket, to ride through the streets of Tehran and discover its people in the persons of his various passengers.

Starring Jafar Panahi


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

A gentle, understated and humorous film, which nevertheless makes a serious point about a repressive regime.
