Sly  (Iran, 2018)


Political satires are rare in Iranian cinema—to say the least—so it’s especially refreshing to come across one as openly and broadly comical as Sly. Qodrat (Behdad) dreams of high office while delivering fiery conservative speeches in his garage to a handful of oddball followers. When a twist of fate launches him into the political mainstream, his increasingly off-the-wall positions threaten to expose the corruption of the whole system.

DCP, color, 90 min. Director: Kamal Tabrizi. Screenwriter: Aidin Sayar Sarie. Cast: Hamed Behdad, Vishka Asayesh, Azadeh Samadi.
