Hours before leaving Tehran for a three-year stay in Melbourne, young couple Amir (Peyman Moaadi) and Sara (Negar Javaherian) find themselves looking after a neighbour's newborn, left to them by the nanny. However, this well-meaning favour soon turns tragic and threatens to derail more than just their plans to move abroad. Unfolding in real-time and almost entirely within a Tehran apartment, this psychological drama patiently burrows to the heart of its moral dilemma, where doing the right thing may in fact be the very worst choice for this well-meaning couple. Assisted by excellent performances, intimate cinematography and expert editing, 'Melbourne' is a compellingly universal and thoroughly engrossing movie. A very tense thriller not to be missed!
