A documentary thriller describing the last days of the Israeli community in Tehran, on the eve of the Islamic Revolution in 1979. The director, whose family was in Tehran at the time, uses rare archive materials to illustrate how thousands of Israelis, who enjoyed unusual affinity with the Shah's regime, wake up one morning to find their paradise vanished.Written by
If you are interested in Iran's contemporary history and the middle east in general; don't miss out on this movie. It brings a period of time to our attention that despite all the books and documentaries and movies that have been discussing and describing it; lots of it's aspects have remained unknown "The Iranian Revolution", Dan Shadur the son of an Israeli couple amongst many of the Israeli community in Tehran before the revolution, interviews his fathers colleagues and friends about their experiences of living in Iran, their memories, the circumstances and the pros and cons, surprisingly they all have a unique feeling toward Iran, and talk about their memories with a great passion; they talk about the similarities between Iranians and Jewish people, their life style in Tehran and their high salaries and it was very entertaining and interesting at the same time to look at the pictures of Iran decades ago. As an Iranian I did not know that such relations existed between Iran and Israel, it was really interesting and I think I'm going to watch it again.
