A Few Cubic Meters of Love
aka Chand metre moka'ab eshgh
First screened in October 2014
Director: Jamshid Mahmoudi. Cast: Hassiba Ebrahimi, Nader Fallah, Saed Soheili, Alireza Ostadi, Masoud Mirtaheri. Screenplay: Jamshid Mahmoudi and Navid Mahmoudi.

Twitter Capsule: Overdetermined plot; spaces not clearly laid out. Better at evoking milieu, intense emotion.

VOR:   Rare glimpse of contemporary refugee conditions. Spare style marshaled to impressive tragic impact. Austere and melodramatic at once—no mean feat.
