Description
 
A married, small-town factory manager grapples with his company's dire financial situation while becoming involved in an unstable affair with a modern woman from Tehran. With Hemlock's open treatment of infidelity, this Iranian Fatal Attraction proved to be quite controversial in Iran, and also a box-office success. Director Behrooz Afkhami's elegant drama "surpasses [Adrian] Lyne's thriller with his subtlety, complexity, and compassion, and his vision of a world of moral ambiguity layered with unexpected corruption and innocence" (Peter Keough, Boston Phoenix). Also known as Shokaran. In Persian with English subtitles.
