My Uncle Napoleon

Daii jan Napelon

Directed by Nasser Taghvai
Iran, 1976
Comedy, Drama, TV Movie


An uproarious adaptation of a popular novel by Iraj Pezeshkzad set in and around the family compound in early 1940s Tehran. The title character, so-called because of his constant invocation of the general, rules over a wonderfully complex extended family.
