Tale of a group of Iranian families, fleeing from Iran to Turkey in order to seek asylum from Turkey to some Western European country or USA. The movie shows the hardship and very sad days that millions of Iranian families have had experienced during 1980's outcome of the Iranian Revolution. Written by
A powerful drama written & directed by Reza Allamehzadeh. This is the story of several Iranian families who have flee Iran in the early days of 1979 Islamic revolution seeking asylum in Europe and USA. The place they are staying is a modest hotel in Turkey called "Hotel Astoria". The movie shows the hardship and very sad days that many Iranian families went trough. thumbs Up!!
"The Guests of Hotel Astoria" was received very well in many film festivals such as Venice, Moscow, Chicago and Montreal (1989).
