Madame Saïdi

France, 2016


In 2007, French filmmakers Paul Costes and Bijan Anquetil met by chance a peculiar 70-year-old woman in the streets of Teheran. Seven years later they returned to Iran to make a film about her. At her age, and to everyone’s surprise, Ms Saïdi has become a film star.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
