A love triangle's games are played under the discreet veil of electronic communications when text messages and cell phone calls stand in for intimacy in this contemporary tale of tangled relationships. Avantgarde artist/filmmaker Akbari (20 FINGERS, 10 + 4), star of Kiarostami's TEN, focuses on the body as a sometimes deceptive facade for the soul in an unusual narrative of close encounters through overheard calls and one-on-one disclosures. A woman struggles with the catastrophic blow to her beauty caused by her lover's car wreck, against a background of urban mating dances. By:Barbara Bridge Denver Film Festival
