Three lonely hearts—a bodybuilder, a receptionist and a religious singer—navigate the chilly waters of romance in Tehran. The whole city is an alienating urban landscape that puts the irony in the title of writer-director Ali Jaberansari’s second feature. Jaberansari’s deadpan humor and a wry visual style make this an offbeat romantic comedy. In fact, it suggests that it’s the absurdity of pursuing love, not its triumphs that really makes us human.
Ali Jaberansari, the director of Tehran: City of Love was born in 1981, Tehran, Iran. The independent moviemaker is based in London and is a graduate of the London Film School. Best Actress Tiantan Award
