Dark comedy from Iran about a banned filmmaker insulted by the fact that a serial killer who hunts filmmakers isn't going after him.

"Banned from making films, Hasan (Hasan Majuni) is doubly frustrated that his muse, the actress Shiva (Leila Hatami, A Separation), is working with other directors. His home life is faring no better. There are disagreements with his wife, and his aged mother is getting more and more detached from reality. But most galling of all, a serial killer is going about beheading Iran’s finest filmmakers, yet Hasan remains unscathed. Why, when he is one of the greatest, is he being completely ignored?" (Sydney Film Festival)

It contributes to a sense of the film’s insubstantiality underneath all the busy-ness, especially when it bows out on a slightly sour note.

An energetic stab at screwball comedy.
