The Tenants – Did ya ever wanna see a screwball comedy from Iran? Well, this is probably as close as you’re gonna get.


















Leila – I saw this in Santa Monica where it played with no subtitles. I didn’t realize this when going in, but was boxed in by the full house. I was the only non-Farsi speaking person in the theater. I watched the whole thing and was able to follow the story just by watching what happened. This is another film showing how much it sucks to be a woman in modern Iran.
