All Three Of Us
dir. Kheiron (2015)
[subtitled, from the French “Nous trois ou rien”)
Hibat, a young Iranian activist, survives the autocratic regime of the shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and the religo-political purges of the ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, before finding a new life and purpose in France. A sombre story made uproariously palatable in the telling.
