Chicken with Plums 2011

Product Details     The setting is Tehran of 1958, Nasser Ali Khan is one of the most renowned violinists of his day.  His beloved violin was recently broken and he begins to lose all taste for life.  He goes to his bed to die because he cannot find another instrument worthy enough as a replacement.
     I didn’t like the use of flashbacks for the telling of this story plus the mood is very melancholy and down.  Once you know all the background, you have sympathy for Nasser.  With limited information, you want to tell him to get up and get going, stop feeling sorry for yourself and get out of bed!!  3* (This movie is OK)

93 min, Drama directed by Vincent Paronnaud, Marjane Satrapi with Mathieu Amalric, Edouard Baer, Maria de Medeiros, Golshifteh Farahani.

Note:  Imdb 6.9 out of 10, 76% critic 72% audience on Rotten Tomatoes.
