After his river-sourced water supply is cut off, Reza’s goldfish begin dying. His attempt to reopen his sluice is met with a violent attack by thuggish local Abbas, a strongman for a shadowy organization known as simply “the company.” Reza refuses to compensate Abbas for a fake injury, or bribe his way out of mounting legal problems, but he quickly discovers the steep price to be paid for holding on to principles in a system where money trumps morality.
Plot: Reza, residing in the wilderness with his wife and son, lives a retired life and devotes himself to freshwater fish farming. A private company that has targets on his land is ready to do anything to force him to sell.

Corruption-criticizing film smuggled out of Iran
I attended this film at a packed theater at the Films From the South Festival (FFSF) in Oslo in November 2017, and this s the first of the films Mohammad Rasoulof has made that i’ve seen. this film was awarded at the Cannes Festival, and participated in the main program in FFSF, and was smuggled out of Iran. The director was to present the film at the festival, as well as doing a Q&A afterwards, but couldn’t show due to his passport was taken away from him just before he was to leave.
The film is about a family of three trying to get by by using his land to produce fish, but is challenged by a mysterious company which corrupts the entire society, even the police and justice system. A film about the little man not ready to bow for the suppression. he actually has to join to get by.
This is a well made film, and not a very happy one. The story telling is quiet and quite slow, but has it’s dramatic parts. A good and important film, from a re-known film maker in a country which needs this kind of films. Still the film had a little trouble in engaging me.
Probably best Iranian movie ever made.
Most of critics attend to political weight of the movie and political messages which it delivers. But apart from politics, the movie is a masterpiece in form and narration style. Each scene has been worked on and made with obsessive precision and all these finesse and details are what make it big big work. Actors & actresses are also top notch, although they’re mostly rookie and some even first time acting in a movie. Atmosphere of the movie is also well designed and truly synchronizes and delivers with the narration. Only problem i saw in the movie was that in some points Director goes so far and makes unnecessary endeavors to delivers his thoughts to viewer, like he doesn’t assume to viewer be intelligent enough to take the message by him/herself. But this small deficiency doesn’t make me to hesitate to give the movie an absolute 10 rating. Well done Mr Director.
