This dark comic fable takes place in a rugged mountain village where, for forty-five years, no one has died, but not for lack of trying. Crotchety old men, some over a century old, spend their days smoking, bickering, soaking in the bathhouse, and trying to figure out how to commit suicide without being stopped by the detachment of exasperated soldiers in charge of keeping them alive. First-time director Reza Jamali takes full advantage of the film’s picturesque setting and cast of charmingly grumpy old coots. (Dir.: Reza Jamali, Iran, 2019, 85 min., DCP, Persian with English subtitles)
