Crimson Gold (2003)
Jafar Panahi directs an Abbas Kiarostami script, which establishes how parties are illegal in Iran, the disadvantaged are routinely humiliated and the gap between the very poor and the very rich is distending. It's a quiet, gently flowing and profoundly embittered piece of cinema, demonstrating without redundant earnestness or hysteria how the most inoffensive, inconspicuous, seemingly indomitable spirit can be smothered by any casually unjust system.
