From one of the most established names of Iranian cinema, comes a subtle and lyrical drama of a man and woman torn by poverty, isolation, and tragic fate. An unemployed man looks for work and love in an unforgiving society during an equally unforgiving winter.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
"It's Winter" is an amazing film, but bitter. I loved the imagery, feel and music... Especially music (Akhavan Saless poem sung by Shajarian). By watching two of his films, I can say Rafi Pitts is one of my favorite film makers who's aware of Iranian literature, poetry, music and art.
I was absorbed in this slow,bleak film,about trying to survive,alone,in an environment that doesn't inspire hope.Not much dialogue,but there was no need,the wonderful performance from the lead actor (Ali Niksolat) was enough.
