A Man of Integrity

Mohammad Rasoulof

Iran, 2017, 118 minutes

Reza, an academic from Tehran, has moved to a village to farm goldfish and raise his child away from the rat race. His wife, Hadis, is head teacher at the local girls’ high school. Reza’s ponds are downstream from a major business operation run by “The Company”—the powerful concern whose minions control the town’s government, police, and even the mosque. Reza, alone among his neighbors, refuses to pay “tips,” or bribes, to conduct his business. Just how far can he take his stand? Like the fish, Reza and Hadis find themselves swimming against a tide of corruption that threatens to engulf them. Shot clandestinely in northern Iran by a director whose fierce independence mirrors his protagonist’s (Rasoulof himself faces a jail sentence), with intense performances by the two excellent leads, the film chronicles a singular but highly symbolic struggle, showing that if power corrupts, powerlessness corrupts absolutely.—Judy Bloch

In Persian with English subtitles
