“This spry, sharp and relentlessly clever middle finger to censorship is Panahi’s boldest act of defiance to date.” Time Out New York

In this masterpiece of guerilla filmmaking Iranian director Jafar Panahi, who has been banned from filmmaking in Iran, takes us on a road trip through Tehran. His taxi, equipped with video cameras, becomes a stage for tragedies, crimes and confessions and gives deep and entertaining insight into today’s Iranian society.

“A love letter to cinema.” Darren Aronofsky
