Despite being officially barred from leaving Iran's borders, Ali-Reza Amini's film has earned international acclaim as a standout of the Iranian New Wave. The film follows a young man as he performs his military service at a camp near Tehran. A smuggled tape recorder with a recording of a woman's voice is the only lifeline that he and his comrades have to the cheerful world outside of their barracks. With its beautiful imagery and lingering themes, Amini's film is "a captivating tale of desire" (Toronto Film Festival). In Farsi with English subtitles.
