A Few Days of Respite
Festival year: 2011
Photographer Hassan and teacher Mohsen, an Iranian gay couple, flee their country since homosexual relationships are liable to the death penalty in their country. In France, Yolande, a lonely yet friendly widow, takes pity on Mohsen. Intriguing movie in which gay rights in Iran and the immigration issue in France collide.
Algerian actor/director Amok Hakkar’s intriguing and subdued movie succeeds in convincingly bringing the inner conflict out into the limelight.
2010, 79 min.
