“You wanted me to fight?” The Match Factory has released a new official trailer for an Iranian drama titled A Man of Integrity, which first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival before going on to play at a bunch of other festivals this year. The film is about a humble, hard-working man who runs a goldfish farm on his property in a small Iranian town. He tries to keep his life and his business legitimate and clean, until the corruption surrounding him begins to put pressure on his livelihood. This trailer reveals a lot of the story, so watch out, but it’s a very hard sell otherwise. The film stars Reza Akhlaghirad, Soudabeh Beizaee, and Nasim Adabi. I saw this film in Cannes and it’s damn good, but also super depressing. It’s a sad story of an honest man just trying to be good in an endlessly corrupt world. It’s still worth it to watch a film from Iran. ›››
