This Is Not a Film

Iran, 2011

It’s been months since Jafar Panahi, stuck in jail, has been awaiting a verdict by the appeals court. By depicting a day in his life, Panahi and Mojtaba Mirtahmasb try to portray the deprivations looming in contemporary Iranian cinema.

Vår mening

Despite house arrest in his home country of Iran, director Jafar Panahi successfully made and smuggled to the Cannes Film Festival this self-reflexive, confessional masterpiece. Ingeniously subverting all notions of filmmaking, he’s created a deeply moving exercise in poetic and political justice.

It’s admirable as an act of political resistance. As cinema, it’s surprisingly sublime.

At the time of his arrest, Panahi was about to shoot another film. Unable to make it, Panahi decided to act it out from Mirtahmasb’s camera. Deprived of his locations, deprived of his actors, Panahi becomes a master symbolist.

Such extraordinary, carefully deployed details pronounce both This Is Not a Film’s mastery and its abounding sadness and outrage. In just over and hour, Panahi and Mirtahmasb communicate more than most filmmakers, all while vigilantly minding what they say.
