Iran meets Fellini meets spaghetti western meets vampires
31 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

"A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night" is a movie that you thought couldn't exist: an Iran-set movie that mixes the spaghetti western genre with vampires. In fact, in the opening scene the woman makes a face reminiscent of some a person in a Fellini movie. Overall, Ana Lily Amirpour's movie depicts a presumed seedier side of Iran, the sort of image that you get of a polity in a Quentin Tarantino movie (without the pop culture references and over-the-top violence). It's set in a fictional industrial town where the residents have no discernible future prospects. The vampire reminds me of the vampire in the Swedish movie "Let the Right One In": she relates to people like any ordinary human would, and she just happens to be a blood-drinking creature of the night. Even more eye-opening is the cast: Sheila Vand co-starred in "Argo" and appeared with Robin Williams on Broadway; Marshall Manesh co-starred in "The Big Lebowski"; and Mozhan Marnò co-starred in "Charlie Wilson's War".

I understand that Amirpour's next movie is basically "El topo" meets "Dirty Dancing", starring Keanu Reeves, Jim Carrey and Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo on "Game of Thrones"). If this movie is any indication, her upcoming movie should be a neat one. In the meantime, I recommend "A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night". Really fun.
