The Deserted Station review

Haunting, moving and simple, this slow-burn drama offers an oblique parable about life in contemporary Iran.

Driving through the bleak desert, a childless couple break down in a deserted railway town. The husband (Nezam Manouchehri) goes in search of spare parts, leaving his wife (Leila Hatami) to fill her time by teaching the little ones at the local school... Based on a story by Iranian cinema legend Abbas Kiarostami (Through The Olive Trees, Close Up), this intimate tale hides great emotional depth beneath its calm surface.
