Dancing in the Dust

Unable to repay money he's borrowed for a divorce, a young Iranian (Faramarz Gharibian) stows away in the back of a van driven by a taciturn snake hunter (Yousef Khodaparast in a masterful performance) and soon finds himself trapped in a terrifying desert landscape that recalls Erich von Stroheim's Greed. This debut feature by Asghar Farhadi begins as domestic drama, but once it moves into the desert (vividly captured by cinematographer Hassan Karimi) it becomes a powerful face-off between youth and experience, faith and resignation. In Farsi with subtitles. 95 min.
