Storyline

When you change where you are do you change who you are? I Am Nasrine is an intimate journey of self-discovery and ultimately reveals the unfolding of a soul. Set in modern day Tehran, and the UK, the film follows the paths of Nasrine and Ali, sister and brother in a comfortable, middle class Iranian home. When Nasrine has a run-in with the police, the punishment is more than she bargained for. At her father's bidding, Nasrine and Ali set out for the UK, torn about leaving behind their home and all that they know, embarking on a reluctant exile. Still, for Nasrine, there is undeniable excitement about the prospect of starting a new life in the West, and an eagerness for its promise of new freedoms. Arriving in Britain, their fate and their future are far from certain. Nasrine is quick to settle into her new life, making friends, forming bonds, including Nichole from the gypsy/travelers community. All the while her brother Ali struggles with the realities of life in the UK and his ... Written by Production Office

Fantastic: what film should be
5 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

Fantastic. This is the story of Ali and Nasrine coming to the UK and building a life for themselves. This is what film should be. Finally saw the film after following it for a while and it blew me away. I cried my eyes out. I could not recommend this enough. See it. Saw it at the local cinema and so much echoed of my own experience. This is a film with real soul and depth. If you get a chance go and see it. This should be taught in all schools everywhere. This is not a film that you will regret seeing. Apparently I need to write 10 lines! All I want to say is: See it! See it! See it!!! See it!!!See it!!!See it!!!See it!!!See it!!!See it!!!
