Mahi va Gorbeh Iran | 2013 | col | dir. Shahram Mokri, with Babak Karimi, Saeed Ebrahimifar, Siyavash Cheraghi Pour, Mohammad Berahmani
A bold experiment in perpetual motion with an enigmatic time-warp narrative, Fish and Cat plays out as one continuous shot, with the camera moving among a host of characters in a remote forest and a nearby lake. The film builds an atmosphere of tension as a menacing pair descend on a campsite where a group of college kids have gathered for a kite-flying festival. But as the camera doubles back and criss-crosses between characters in real time, subtle space-time paradoxes suggest that something bigger is going on. Brilliantly sustained, Fish and Cat is further evidence of a new generation of filmmakers emerging in Iran.
