Storyline

In a drab, anonymous gray school governed by a strict authoritarian regime, an apparently unremarkable day is turned on its head following a seemingly ridiculous announcement. Disbelieving at first, the all male, identically uniformed pupils are informed that what they had always been taught as fact is no longer true. When the incredulous students speak out, what initially seems laughably absurd becomes desperately real as they are forced to question how far they will go to stand up for their beliefs. Two & Two is an allegory for the absurdness of dictatorship and tyranny - and the resilience of the human spirit. Written by Anonymous

impressive for its simplicity. and for its bitter realism. because, it is a film about school. in same measure, it is a film about society. and, for people knowing the life under Communism, sure, it reminds the essence of dictatorship. but it has the virtue to put front to us the question - what is the reaction of us ? what is the price of resistance? what is the right way to say the truth ? what is the value of truth ? the virtue of film - an Iranian film speaks, so clear and loud, about a reality who becomes more and more present in old democracies. it is a simple interrogation. 2 + 2 = ? the answer change everything. at the each level.
