(500) Films of Empire - Day 125

447 - Ten - 3 stars
A rather interesting film that is minamilist in its approach yet ultimately more absorbing because of it, which is simply ten conversations between an female divorced Iranian cab driver and her insolent son, family and random customers.
It has a remarkable honesty and realness to it, that if this was in any way scripted I was not able to tell as it flowed organically, especially the banter between the mother and her son who is bitter about her divorce to his father.
It slowly builds up a fascinating look at the role that women have in Iranian society.
