    Une petite merveille qui fourmille de moments inoubliables, parfois drôles, parfois cruels, par un des metteurs en scène iraniens les plus doués de sa génération... www.cinefiches.com

    Can you cry for the camera, on cue? It could (just maybe) change your life.

  8. animalcalls's rating of the film Salaam Cinema

    I inherently do not trust Makhmalbaf, and I don't think he wants us to. Salaam Cinema is a nosedive into the murky waters of the definition of truth--is acting truth? Are emotions truth? Are films truth? Is THIS film truth? At one point he poses a question to a man: if he were directing a film, would he cast Makhmalbaf as the good or bad guy? "The bad guy," the man says. The proceeding shot is the film distilled.

  9. glitchedplant's rating of the film Salaam Cinema

    so many parts in this made me cry. the rawness of iranian films make so much sense after this audition process. i did read somewhere that the entire audition was acted out but i don't think i care if that's true or not. these humans were brilliant whether it was their real feelings or acted out feelings. they're all humane artists.

    Mohsen Makhmalbaf will be joining us at the QUADRANGLE FILM FESTIVAL in Kent next weekend! Very exciting! He will be talking to us after a screening in the barn of Salaam Cinema. Still tickets left for this very different kind for film event. http://www.quadranglefilmfest.com/. Camping, local produce, live music and a beautiful river to wild swim in. See you there?

  11. Sudipto Basu's rating of the film Salaam Cinema

    Salaam Cinema goes further than most other Iranian meta-films in exposing the deceits built into filmmaking. One can dismiss the whole premise as a planned gimmick, but it is to Makhmalbaf's credit that he lets us question his motivations too.
