Synopsis

Synopsis

From Golden Lion and Golden Bear Winner Director

Well-known actress Behnaz Jafari is distraught by a provincial girl’s video plea for help - oppressed by her family to not pursue her studies at the Tehran drama conservatory. Behnaz abandons her shoot and turns to filmmaker Jafar Panahi to help solve the mystery of the young girl’s troubles. They travel by car to the rural northwest where they have amusing encounters with the charming folk of the girl’s mountain village. But the city visitors soon discover that the protection of age-old traditions is as generous as local hospitality…

Press

"Defiantly modern in its liberating message about freedom of choice."

The Hollywood Reporter

"An exceptional work.
It’s modest but profound, leisurely but urgent, a portrait of a country disguised as a meandering road movie."

The Wrap

"3 Faces is a lovely, ineffably moving meditation… Like much of his recent work, this modest drama slowly segues from a low-key mystery to a casual survey of how women — especially actresses — have been demonised by their countrymen."
