CANNES REPORT - PANAHANDEH'S NAHID


An Iranian socio-realist melodrama that's drawing reviews good enough to attract comparison's to 2011's Berlin Golden Bear winner, Asghar Farhadi's A Separation. Ida Panahandeh's film Nahid has shown at Cannes to excellent response from critics; the film actually stars A Separation's Sareh Bayat in its leading role, and the performances are Nahid's most valuable asset, according to reviews.
