A RESPECTABLE FAMILY

Yek Khanevadeh-e mohtaram

un film de : Massoud Bakhshi

Arash is an Iranian academic who lives in the West. He returns to Iran to teach in Shiraz, a city far from Tehran where his mother lives. Drawn into a series of domestic and financial dramas, he faces a country that is now alien to him. Following the death of his father and the discovery of what his “respectable family” has become, he is forced to make choices.

French Synopsis :

Arash est un universitaire iranien qui vit en Occident. Il retourne donner des cours à Chiraz où vit sa mère, loin de Téhéran. Entraîné dans un tourbillon d’intrigues familiales et financières, il replonge dans un pays dont il ne possède plus les codes. A la mort de son père, découvrant ce qu’est devenue sa «famille respectable», il est contraint de faire des choix.
