‘Yellow’ among box office top hits of week
Art and Experience: Iranian movie ‘Yellow’ reached a total sale of 50 billion Rials at the Iranian box office this week.
Directed by Mostafa Taghizadeh, the movie has so far become one of the top Iranian social films in 2017.
Also written by Taqizadeh and produced by Kamran Majidi, ‘Yellow’ is a drama about people’s relations, goals and their achievements.
Taqizadeh’s debut tells the story of four young Iranians Nahal, Hamed, Faramarz, and Nicki who are the members of a scientific genius team trying to immigrate from Iran to Europe.
Three days before their journey to Italy, Hamed exhausts because of his unknown illness and it shocks the team tremendously. The crisis reveals layers of each of the four in the past and present, and leads to new decision-making and judgment.
