It could sound blasphemous, but I think we can see in the relationship between art and reality the same types that H. Even the manner of the picture's release is farcical: it left Iran on a USB stick stuffed in a cake, reaching France in time to premiere at last year's Cannes Film Festival.

I proudly offer this award to the people of my country, a people that respect all cultures and civilizations and despise hostility and resentment.

Unquestionably a classic. Well, no. Stone indicated that he found it remarkable that Panahi has been able to make four features given his circumstances. The White Balloon pictures a world in fair tale tones: it's from the girl point of view. I think the way Panahi sees the relationship between movie and reality is in terms of paradox: movie and reality are different; the movie remains a prisoner of the reality, regardless of any efforts to escape; the reality remains prisoner of the movie, though it's unaware. All this is true, but after five minutes you start asking yourself what's the big deal. Bush and its decision to invade Iraq in The kid story hides a deeper level. Remarkably, humour is not entirely absent from another new documentary with confinement at its core. Some enterprising manufacturer should try adding to the international pressure on Iran by producing a special Panahi aux raisins, or a line of commemorative Jafar Cakes.

Still, Herzog doesn't demonise the killers or canonise the victims; no one who comes before his lens is anything more or less than human.

Although Panahi was later released from prison, he was banned from leaving the country and was rearrested in March What is it then?

He said he had long been interested in Iran and its year history and was fortunate that the invitation from Fajr came when his schedule would allow his visit.

His response was to make a film. Richard Niebuhr discovered in the relationship between Christian religion and culture. The final scene ends with an apocalyptic vision of the outside world.

But after few unprofitable attempts, Panahi looks at the camera and tells that films are not meant to be "told", rather meant to be "made", essentially establishing a strict boundary between cinema and what is not cinema. He illustrates this filmmaking aspect by showing clips from two of his earlier works, The Mirror Ayneh, and Crimson Gold Talaye Sorkh,which featured unexpected responses on the part of his unprofessional actors that were incorporated into and added to the narratives.

It does it abruptly: the girl declares out of the blue that she doesn't want to play any more in the movie!

Panahi takes a call from his lawyer, who tells him that, while he is definitely going to prison, she expects the ban to be reduced. It's certainly a slap in the face for anyone who thought the old file-hidden-in-a-cake trick was dead. Asked in his press conference if he planned either dramatic or documentary films about the current situation in the Middle East, or profiles of any of its leaders similar to those he did of Fidel Castro and Vladimir Putin, Stone said did not. Her father in the story forbids her to do that and has her locked up inside the house. On Chaharshanbe Souri in addition to setting fireworks, people like to make bonfires and leap over them, an act that has some symbolic significance. The young man cautiously, but genuinely, talks about his life, his difficulties finding a job, and other aspects about his life in Tehran. He said he had long been interested in Iran and its year history and was fortunate that the invitation from Fajr came when his schedule would allow his visit. Panahi, who had supported the defeated Green Movement candidate, Mir-Hossein Mousavi, was arrested shortly afterwards when he attended a cemetery gathering to mourn the death of Neda Agha-Soltan, who had been gunned down on the streets during post-election protests. Some other times we see the girl, but the sound is missing. I think for two reasons: because of the Big Brother presence what else is a candid camera? The film ends with scenes where Panahi assumes the dual role of a cameraman and a character and engages in amusing conversations with a university student of art whose part-time job is to collect trash in the apartment building.
