Tehran: City of Love (2019)
Directed by Ali Jaberansari
Three lonely hearts — a bodybuilder, a receptionist and a religious singer — navigate the chilly waters of romance in an alienating urban landscape that puts the irony in the title of writer-director Ali Jaberansari’s second feature. Jaberansa’s deadpan humor and a wry visual style make this an offbeat romantic comedy that suggests it’s the absurdity of pursuing love, not its triumphs, that really makes us human.
Director: Ali Jaberansari. Screenwriter: A. Jaberansari, Maryam Najafi. Cast: Forough Ghajabegli, Mehdi Saki, Amir Hessam Bakhtiari
DCP, color, 102 min.
FREE admission for all UCLA students with valid I.D.
