Panahi, known for X Ray Lets Go Remixes internationally acclaimed movies like 'The Circle', 'White Balloon' and 'The Mirror' on humanitarian struggles in the country, has been outspoken in his support of Iran's opposition movement, earning the wrath of the government.
The filmmaker was convicted of colluding in gathering and making propaganda against the regime, lawyer Farideh Off Side Match Of The Day told the Iranian state news agency, ISNA, the Guardian reported. Stella D Super Reviewer. Jul 07, Well-meaning and well-worn in equal measure. William G Super Reviewer. Jan 31, Some of the things I missed out of disinterest or lazyness, while other things were missed out of sheer inopportunity, one such film is this small Iranian drama which was given a miniscule release last march, but eventually found its way onto a handful of top ten lists.
The film is set on the day of a big soccer match in Tehran between the Iranian national team and the Bahrain, if Off Side Match Of The Day wins or ties they will secure a spot in the world cup.
The film documents a group of young women trying to see the game live in Azadi Stadium. The problem is that women are legally banned from entering the stadium under Iranian Off Side Match Of The Day. The law does little to deter hardcore female soccer fans from trying Off Side Match Of The Day sneak in, as is depicted in the opening scene of the film in which a girl tries to sneak in but is caught at the door.
This girl, like the rest of the characters, is unnamed throughout the film. She is brought to a makeshift cage outside the stadium which is guarded by Ernst Krenek Gottfried Michael Koenig Spiritus Intelligentiae Sanctus Klangfiguren young soldiers serving their compulsory service in the Iranian army.
The film proceeds to examine and challenge the Iranian gender restriction laws, focusing of course on the restrictions at sporting events. What really makes the film work is the general absurdity of the situation at hand. For those who don? Yet in this modern environment complete with cell phonesbizarre attitudes toward women still persist almost unchallenged. The main reason men of power cite for the stadium restriction laws is that? In other words, women aren?
Adding to the irony is that most of these female fans are interested in seeing the game out of purely patriotic interest in this big match. The girls are clad in Iranian flags and face paint and whenever they learn that the Iranian team has done something well they go into a nationalistic chant. By banning women from the game the nation has prevented a large portion of the population from engaging in a nationalistic celebration, and for no logical reason.
All the characters are played by ordinary people rather than professional actors, but they seem to come across fine. Interestingly, large parts of the film were actually shot discreetly at the real game between Iran and Bahrain.
There are authentic crowd scenes, and because of this the film? The plotline here may be Jorge Ben Live On Stage bit thin for most.
The film essentially plays out in real time 90 minute film, 90 minute soccer matchis more of a slice of life than a fully realized story. The real joy here is in the interesting conversations that take place along the way, as well as the overall political statement the film makes.
I was a bit disappointed in the film? But overall this is definitely an interesting film worth seeing to spend some time in this foreign culture. See all Audience reviews.
