Synopsis:
Chaos ensues when the police raid a wedding. The groom opens fire, the guests panic and Davoud (Saed Soheili from 2015’s Crazy Castle), doused in cherry juice, ends up in a car with Aida. Moments later they crash into a police car and Aida pretends the two are married.

Mani Haghighi’s first foray into comedy was a big hit in Iran, being the third best selling film of Iran to date. With an acting career in his own right (Haghighi has appeared in Asghar Farhadi’s About Elly and Nima Javidi’s Melbourne), he also graces the screen in a cameo. His other film this year, A Dragon Arrives, premiered at Berlin Film Festival earlier this year in the main competition.

Bodyguard (بادیگارد)
Directed by Ebrahim Hatamikia

Genre: Action/Thriller/Political drama , 109min

Written and directed by critically acclaimed filmmaker, Ebrahim Hatami Kia, Bodyguard tells the story of an old war hero assigned with the task of protecting one of the most important Iranian scientists; a young genius working at Iran’s Atomic Agency. Faced with an imminent threat of assassination, things only get worse as the young genius refuses to allow his bodyguard to protect him.
The 18th film by Ebrahim Hatamikia has been one of the most successful among his latest films. It was reviced well at Tahran’s Fajr Film Festival this year and has done great at the box-office as well.
