|“Carnage”, “Amour” to stir up Fajr festival||
TEHRAN -- Roman Polanski’s comedy drama “Carnage” and Michael Haneke’s romance drama “Amour” will be screened at the 31st Fajr International Film Festival.
The films will be shown in the noncompetition section of the festival, which will be held in Tehran from January 31 until February 11.
“Carnage” is about two pairs of parents who hold a cordial meeting after their sons are involved in a fight. However, as their time together progresses, their increasingly childish behavior throws the evening into chaos.
The film brought Polanski and Yasmina Reza the César award for Best Adapted Screenplay in 2012.
“Amour” is the Austrian submission to the Academy Awards this year. The Film has received five nominations including Best Achievement in Directing and Best Foreign Language Film of the Year.
The film is about Georges and Anne, who are in their eighties, and are cultivated, retired music teachers. Their daughter, who is also a musician, lives abroad with her family. One day, Anne has an attack and the couple’s bond of love is severely tested.
“Amour” won the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film this year.
