Based on a Novella by Sadegh Hedayat who was Iran’s most prominent modernist writer. The film stayed mostly faithful to the fiction but had some adaptations. This was a story of a middle aged respected figure who is left as a trustee of a friend’s estate, as well as the guardianship of the daughter of the deceased. He falls for the young woman but because of honour fulfils his role as a godfather and arranges her marriage but the fire of love torments him and he starts drinking to sooth his pain. His only companion is a parrot that hears his love confessions.
It was well acted by Iran’s most notable male actor behrooz vosooghi and one of the great directors Masoud Kimiai
