Iranian Road Trip (Film Thoughts: 3 Faces)

3faces1I am not going to pretend that I got all there is to get out of ‘3 Faces.’  This film by Iranian Director Jafar Panahi is richly layered, and it story is layered as well, about three generations of Iranian actresses.  It starts with a cell phone video of a young girl who may or may not have killed herself, and what happens next is a road movie of sorts, but really it’s not. It’s a commentary on Iranian culture, and I wish I was more educated about their issues – people speaking Turkish vs Persian, for example – and then I would have appreciated the film more.
