UCLA Film & Television Archive presents
Bomb, A Love Story (2018)
Directed by Payman Maadi
The epic scope and cinematic ambition of writer-director Payman Maadi’s second feature (following Snow on the Pines, which screened in the 2014 UCLA Celebration of Iranian Cinema) is evident right from the beginning: a brazura tracking shot through a bustling, rain swept, nostalgic city set that culminates in a scene of horror. This is life in Tehran circa 1988 during the Iran-Iraq War. Maadi and Leila Hatami star as a husband and wife whose personal tragedy becomes entangled in the larger violence surrounding them and the residents of their apartment building whose lives become a prism through which Maadi explores this traumatic period of Iranian history.
Director: Payman Maadi. Screenwriter: Payman Maadi. Cast: Leila Hatami, Payman Maadi, Siamak Ansari
DCP, color, 97 min.
