This 2004 video offers a fascinating look at sexuality in Iran, framing its contemporary interviews with a dramatization of the erotic title poem by 19th-century Persian writer Iraj Mirza. The dreamy narrative, with its jarring jump cuts, suggests the exquisite tableaux of Russian filmmaker Sergei Paradjanov, and it recalls a time when sex was considered spiritual. The interviews expose a deep schism in Iran, mostly generational, as the young rue their lack of sexual freedom and older people reflect on the erosion of moral values. Mitra Farahani directed this French release. In Farsi with subtitles. 70 min.
