Rhino Season (Fasle kargadan)
Rhino Season spans a three decade time frame and is based on the story of a Kurdish Poet who was unjustly imprisoned during Iran's Revolution. Presented by Martain Scorcese, Rhino Season is currently making the festival rounds.
Behouroz Vossougi portrays the lead character Sahel, a tormented man searching for his wife, separated by decades of incarceration.
Monica Bellucci takes the female lead as Sahel's devoted wife Mina. Her character goes through a myriad of emotions and life experiences, also being incarcerated. Ultimately she searches for her husband, who she presumes is dead.

I am always searching for thought provoking historical films to watch. A couple of years back I reviewed a sprawling Italian film Sanguepazzo (Wild Blood) about the sordid lives of Italian film stars Valenti and Freida, worth a watch. http://dansmoviereport.blogspot.com/2011/04/sanguepazzo-movie-review-wild-blood.html
