Product Description

The President and his family rule the land with a draconian fist, enjoying a privileged and luxurious existence at the expense of his miserable and oppressed subjects. After a coup d'etat uproots his position of power, the President's wife and daughters are flown out of the country as he stays behind with his grandson, who is too young to grasp the unfolding events. After his personal escort and bodyguards turn on him, he is forced to disguise himself and flee into the countryside to avoid capture. He soon learns that he is now the country's most wanted fugitive and begins a perilous journey with his grandson, his only ally. Posing as street musicians, the pair blend in with a band of haggard political prisoners just released from jail as they travel towards the coast to an awaiting ship that will take them to safety.

Perhaps even Mohsen Makhmalbaf's most devoted admirers weren't expecting his latest film - opening the Festival's Orrizonti sidebar section - to be quite so absorbing and gripping. But that's what it is, and the director discloses a unsuspected gift for satire and suspense, along with some old-fashioned storytelling gusto. --The Guardian

Iranian filmmaker Mohsen Makhmalbaf has cranked up the voltage from his trademark stately style in this newsworthy drama. --Time Out
