Based on true events 'Fish and Cat' centers around a group of students travelling to the Caspian region in order to participate in a kite-flying event during the Winter solstice. Next to their camp is a small restaurant, run by three cooks, who are just about to leave for a hunt. They are in desperate need of meat. However, there is nothing around, other than the students. Shahram Mokri's second feature combines formal experimentation with terror and a sly sense of humor, perfectly blended in this highly unusual piece of Iranian film history. Written by IMVBox.com

A complete waste of time.
19 October 2016 | by johiraSee all my reviews

well this movie was a complete waste of time. i don't know why it had been given so many prizes intentionally? It's boring as hell and it's not even like a horror movie.there were so much buzz about this movie that i was excited to watch it but i was bored 10 minutes in. It seems the director wanted to make a horror movie but failed to do so.it's a big problem in Iranian cinema. the directors just don't know how to make a good horror movie like Hollywood does.just following the people with a camera and blurting out nonsense dialogues won't make a movie good enough to watch.this movie didn't even followed a certain rule.it was like you are following a bunch of clueless people going around. Don't waste your time. go and watch something else.
