The film follows workaday thugs Khosrow and Morteza as they attempt to retrieve copies of an allegedly seditious manuscript detailing (among other things) an attempt to kill a group of writers by driving their bus off a cliff – something that apparently really happened in the mid-90s. The manuscript implicates a former dissident turned self-serving state executioner, and it is at his bidding that the gruelling acts of violence are carried out. Eschewing the creative subtleties demanded of state-approved Iranian cinema, Rasoulof’s grim thriller goes straight for the jugular, both literally and metaphorically. The results are challenging and alarming; the film-making brave and defiant.
