Description

Portrait of a Lady Far Away Sima-ye zani dar doordast (Ali Mosaffa, 2005, 98min)

An aging architect finds a message on his answering machine from an unknown woman who claims to have dialed his number at random. She also claims that she’s planning on committing suicide. But when he arrives at the given address, he finds the apartment empty. Instead, he chances to meet the caller’s girlfriend who is understandably very upset. Together they drive round the hospitals, but there is no trace of the suicide. He and the young woman — who, like her girlfriend, is an actress — continue to traverse the city through the night. In the process, several seemingly insignificant events and encounters take place which, in his weary mind, gradually create a disquieting image of a world racked by alienation and doubt. The taciturn young woman at his side becomes a kind of guide, taking him surprisingly deep into his own past.
