Circumstance

Feature Film France Iran USA 2011

Atafeh and Shireen are two beautiful teenage Iranians who become lovers. Both come from wealthy families and love each other passionately, even though this kind of love in a country like Iran must be concealed. Hungry for life and freedom, the two girls venture into the artistic underground of Tehran, experimenting with alcohol and drugs. When Mehran, Atafeh's brother, comes back from a rehab centre, he breaks into their romantic idyll. Obsessed by religion, Mehran has joined the regime police and he cannot accept that his sister, whom he used to be very close to, is involved in a forbidden relationship. In his role as moral judge, Mehran goes as far as to spy on and secretly film the two girls. A fatal intrusion in a society oppressed by Islamic fundamentalism. For director Maryam Keshavarz this is a daring debut feature, in which the two leads impress with their brilliant acting and their sensuality.
