“Dressage”, “Top Gear” coming to Iranian theaters

January 8, 2019

TEHRAN – Acclaimed drama “Dressage” and comedy film “Top Gear” will go on screen at Iranian theaters today.

“Dressage”, which is Puya Badkube’s debut directorial movie, tells the story of Golsa and her friends who rob a corner shop. But while evaluating the booty, they are dismayed to realize that they forgot to take the security camera footage. One of them must return to the crime scene and retrieve it. The vote falls on Golsa, who bravely completes the mission. Her friends’ behavior makes her think, and she hides the hard drive somewhere in secret. But her accomplices and their well-to-do families, worried about their social standing, put more and more pressure on Golsa.

The film brought Badkubeh the first-film director award at the 36th Fajr International Film Festival in April 2018.

The film received a special mention in the Generation 14plus competition at the 68th Berlin International Film Festival in February 2018 as well as the Golden Gazelles for best feature film at the 7th Persian International Film Festival in Sydney last September. 

Directed by Mohammad Ahangarani, “Top Gear” is about Soleiman, a young man who tries to be funny but faces a lot of problems in society.

The film stars Sam Derakhshani, Kambiz Dirbaz and Elham Hamidi.
