French Algerian Drama about two Iranian Homosexual refugees in France who befriend a lonely French Woman. Starring Legendary French Star Marina Vlady. Vlady herself of French Russian decent was the former wife of French actor/director of Persian Heritage Robert Hossein (Son of Aminollah André Hossein). Based on a true Story, unfortunately the actors (including the director Amor Hakkar) playing the Iranian gay lovers happen not to be Iranian which may make the story less appealing or authentic with Iranian viewers. But then that is probably the magic as well as the shortcomings of motion pictures which often have to rely on the film director’s vision, limitations and imagination. If an Iranian like Robert Hossein was able to play the German Marshall Erwin Rommel in a WW II Film then why not have non Iranians including in this case Algerians play Iranians ? Ultimately it is the story that matters.
