Clans Feud and Revenge
In a small Iranian village, the long feud between the clans Kamalvandi and Jamalvandi is about to finish with the marriage of Mehrbanou (Roya Nonahali) and Karamat (Ali Sarkhani). However, during the wedding party, Karamat humiliates Mehrbanou and offends the Kamalvandi clan, and their patriarch Pir Baba (Reza Karam Rezai) that had arranged the wedding dies. A couple of days later, Karamat buys a large van to transport the locals to the city. However, the stubborn Mehrbanou does not allow people from her clan to use that means of transportation, and they have to walk. She decides to buy an identical van to ruin Karamat's business and their competition leads to fights between the two families.
"Fast-e Panjom" is another wonderful Iranian film based on their traditions and with a limited budget. The simple screenplay is delightful with the vindictive Mehrbanou trying to make the life of Karamat hell on earth. This movie was released in Brazil on VHS by Cult Films Distributor. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): "A Quinta Estação" ("The Fifth Season")
