Mossadegh a la recherche du Temps Perdu

Mossadegh a la recherche du Temps Perdu
by Darius Kadivar

I found a striking similarity in style and to some degree in the looks between the Young Mohamed Mossadegh ( during his Student Years in Pars) Former Prime Minister of Iran and French writer Marcel Proust. (crica ~1900's) 

Part of a Documentary on Marcel Proust "A la recherche du temps perdu"

Which is equivalent to Citizen Kane's Rosebud ...

Proust get emotional traveling in his memory through his senses. Either the taste of a Madelaine or a piece of music brings back the sensations he felt in the past. So he has found a mechanism to relive the past and understand himself better as a person.

Freud was of the same period so Proust's work appear as greatly influenced by psycho analyisis in general.
