A Very Ordinary Citizen
aka Yek Shahrvand-e Kamelan Maamouli
First screened in October 2015
Director: Majid Barzegar. Cast: Souren Mnatsakanian, Shadi Karamroudi, Nahid Hadadi. Screenplay: Majid Barzegar and Jafar Panahi.

Twitter Capsule: Co-written by Jafar Panahi, a unique melange of contemporary realism, sad comedy, and heightened surprise.

VOR:   Unusual approach to senility, centered neither on pathos nor pathology. Style not quite interesting in itself, but shifts in tone, story, and register keep you guessing.
