CGiii Comment

A very ambitious film.

There is so much crammed in here - your head explode with all the unanswered questions - not necessarily a bad thing.

Watch it as a precursor to a feature...because, it is good enough to become a fully fledged film.

Good work indeed.

Shahram & Abbas (2006) from Maarten van Rossem NSC on Vimeo.

The(ir) Blurb...

In this tragicomedy two Iranian refugees decide to impersonate as a gay couple in order to obtain asylum. But for the adventurous, but lonely Shahram and the serious journalist Abbas it is hard to live with their facade to the very end.
