"The Pleasure of Love in Iran" is an out-take from Agnès Varda's "One SIngs, the Other Doesn't." It mostly shows tiles and architectural detail from Isfahan, Iran. Native to Isfahan Darius is showing his visiting French girlfriend, "Apple" (the one who sings) around. She sees the cupolas as being breast-like and the minarets phallic, he translates some poetry for her, and she writes one (on toilet paper). Only the title and a glimpse of "Pleasure" made it into "One Sings," which clocks in at just over two hours. Darius is a character, the major male character I'd say, in "One Sings."
The short is available as a supplement to the Criterion edition of "One Sings."
