Synopsis

Director Jafar Panahi drives a yellow cab through the vibrant streets of Tehran, picking up a diverse (and yet representative) group of passengers in a single day. Each person candidly expresses their own view of the world, while being interviewed by the curious and gracious driver/director.

Our take

In his third work made after being banned from filmmaking, Jafar Panahi creatively circumvents the Iranian authorities in this ingenious trip through the streets of Tehran, talking to the city’s residents who then in turn confide in him, their driver. Winner of the Golden Bear at the 65th Berlinale.
