Less potent as filmmaking than The Peddler or Marriage of the Blessed, this intriguing 1990 feature by the eclectic, unpredictable Iranian filmmaker Mohsen Makhmalbaf, set in Turkey, was banned in Iran five years ago. It recounts the tale of an adulterous triangle (a taxi driver, a wife, and a man who shines shoes) in three separate versions, each of which offers a different perspective on the characters and issues; with Shiva Gered, Abdolrahman Yalmai, and Aken Tunc. Makhmalbaf, making his first U.S. appearance, will be present at both screenings to answer questions. Film Center, Art Institute, Columbus Drive at Jackson, Saturday, October 21, 8:00, and Sunday, October 22, 4:00, 443-3737.
