Iranians can't go back to Iran
5 February 2009 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

Shahram (Hossein Mardani ) and Abbas (Nader Farman) are two Iranians who meet at the Netherland's airport (in the bathroom, no less) and try to figure out how to be allowed into the country. One is gay, and one is a journalist. This is one of the seven gay-interest shorts found on the "S is for Sexy" DVD. There are some twists and surprises to be found along the way. Pauline (Cecile Heuer) is their public attorney, and will try to help them be admitted if they can prove that they are a gay couple, and are in danger for their lives if they go back. Most of the movie takes place in the holding area while they are waiting, and we get a sense of their plight, the unknown outcome of their plan. Good script. Check it out. Some un-answered questions, but it IS a short film.
