The Lizard

Marmoulak

Directed by Kamal Tabrizi
Iran, 2004
Comedy, Drama

Synopsis

One of the funniest movies to come out of Iran in the past 30 years, The Lizard is about an imprisoned thief who escapes by donning clerical garb. As a “cleric,” he is hilariously mistreated — taxis refuse to pick him up and a young boy pretends to receive his blessing as he picks his pocket.
