Reza Mirkarimi, director of three of Iran’s nominees for the Best International Feature Film Academy Award, returns with this artful, wonderfully acted road-movie drama that evokes memories of neo-realism—but without the attendant sentimentality. Fresh out of jail, Jalal (Hamed Behdad) reluctantly takes charge of his now-motherless two children and heads to Azerbaijan with them and his new Azeri girlfriend. Taking in stunning mountain vistas, it is a trip that will change everything for all involved… Along with the Best Screenplay prize it garnered at Tehran’s Fajr Film Festival, Mirkarimi’s brilliantly executed tale won the Best Film, Best Director, and Best Actor honours at the Shanghai International Film Festival, as well as numerous other festival prizes.

‘Subtly written and sensitively directed, [Mirkarimi’s] new film… is another psychological drama that nimbly teases out the meaning of fatherhood and the responsibility it entails… Castle of Dreams raises ambivalent emotions around the encounter between a man recently out of prison and on the skids and his small son, who displays a touching loyalty to a man who has fallen morally very low…’—Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter

 

Reza Mirkarimi, regisseur van drie Iraanse nominaties voor de Academy Award for Best International Feature Film, is terug met deze artistieke, sterk geacteerde roadmovie die doet denken aan het neorealisme – maar zonder de bijbehorende sentimentaliteit. Jalal (Hamed Behdad) is net uit de gevangenis en neemt met tegenzin de zorg op zich voor zijn twee moederloos geworden kinderen. Hij zet samen met hen en zijn Azeri vriendin koers naar Azerbeidzjan. Deze reis, die wordt begeleid door adembenemende vergezichten, zal alles veranderen… Naast Best Screenplay op het Fajr Film Festival is dit schitterend uitgewerkte verhaal van Mirkarimi bekroond met Best Film, Best Director en Best Actor op het Shanghai International Film Festival en talloze andere festivalprijzen.

‘Subtiel geschreven en met gevoel geregisseerd. [Mirkarimi’s] nieuwe film… is opnieuw een psychologisch drama dat lichtvoetig de betekenis van het vaderschap en de bijbehorende verantwoordelijkheid belicht…’ —Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter
