The Home  (Iran, 2017)


Writer-director Asghar Yousefinejad knocks us off emotional balance right from the start of his debut feature with a grieving daughter’s explosive protests over the fate of her father’s corpse.  Yousefinejad ratchets things up from there, confining the action to follow to the dead man’s home, where a parade of suddenly interested parties intervene, and what begins as a family drama, reveals itself as a sharp satire in which everyone’s motives become suspect.  Winner of best film and best screenplay in the international competition at the Fajr Film Festival.
