Varoonegi (Inversion)
Director Behnam Behzadi’s engrossing and engaging new film features a striking lead performance from Sahar Dowlatshahi as Niloofar, a confident and driven single woman, who owns her own tailoring shop in Tehran. She appears in control of her life, but when her ill mother (Shirin Yazdanbakhsh) collapses after a walk in the polluted city, Niloofar finds herself forced to move out of Tehran and look after her mother in a vacation villa out of the city. Before she knows it, her selfish brother has rented out her shop and the comfortable and – almost – independent life she leads is ripped apart. She must find a way to try and ‘invert’ her life once again.
