REZA / Reza

When a charismatic architect goes through a divorce with his affectionate and fun-loving wife, he slowly begins to discover how lonely he is as he clings on to one relationship after another.

An utterly whimsical and original film, it is a warm and tender take on marriage laced with the poignant ironies of Woody Allen and with a magical and seductive cinematography that portraits Iranian life in a style that has never been seen on film.
