Film: The Circle
Part of the Cinema Of The World season
http://www.starandshadow.org.uk/on/film/767

Directed by Jafar Panahi (2000). Certificate BBFC PG. Length: 87
minutes. Language: Farsi with English subtitles. Format: 35mm.

Set over the course of a single day, Jafar Panahi's powerful film is
an ensemble piece that tells the stark tales of several young Iranian
women and the harsh society in which they live. Beginning with a
childbirth, and the ensuing despair at the discovery that the baby is
a girl, the film touches upon the myriad hardships endured by women
living in Iran's male dominated world of bureaucracy, constant
surveillance and age old inequalities. But even in the midst of this
stifling environment, the spirit, strength and courage of the circle
of women cannot be extinguished. Panahi's gripping and controversial
film is further confirmation that Iranian cinema is now among the most
original, vital and exciting in the world.
