The Chess Game of the Wind
(Shatranj-e baad)

by Mohammad Reza ASLANI

2-Image principale du film-THE CHESS GAME

Banned immediately from the screen, Mohammad Reza Aslani’s first film is finally shown some forty years later. Under the Kadjar dynasty, the heirs of a deceased noble matriarch are fighting over the inheritance of her wealth. A poisonous and obsessive film, The Chess Game of the Wind evokes in its own way Visconti, Buñuel, Siegel (The Beguiled) or Pasolini (Theorem).

Film from the Cannes Classic 2020 Selection.
