Ava’s life is dictated by rules. Coming of age in Iran, she faces pressure to conform to the expectations of her parents, her school, and her friends. When Ava learns that her parents were once flagrant rule breakers themselves, she begins to rebel against the very foundations of her society.

Vår mening

Exquisite characterization and an emotionally rich central performance forge the titular young woman in this complicated portrait of femininity and youth at war with the rule of domineering parents and Iranian culture. Winner of FIPRESCI Jury prize at the Toronto International Film Festival.

An exquisitely photographed train heading straight for a brick wall. Lurching relentlessly from one conflict to another, the movie distills its emotions — and maintains its momentum — in conversations of remarkably controlled intensity.

Foroughi’s movie surveys how the mounting external pressures in Ava’s life bring her to a near-breaking point, and the director has devised (with the cinematographer, Sina Kermanizadeh) an explosive visual grammar to approximate the depths of Ava’s isolation and pain.

How much of the pain of Sadaf Foroughi’s first feature . . . is the pain of being a teenager, and how much is it being a teenager at a particular place and time? How much is personal and how much is institutional, familial, cultural, social, political, architectural? These are the questions raised by Foroughi’s exquisite, unorthodox framings and reframings of her characters, each one posing a separate inquiry.
