Iran 2006 • Directed by Hani Haghighi • Feature Film • 75 minutes
A handful of men prove their masculine determination brings them nothing but trouble in this playful satiric comedy from Iran. Four longtime friends, all well into middle age, are returning to Tehran from a weekend skiing trip when they discover a large rock is stuck in the middle of a road winding around a mountain. The tall stone shaft (which appears just a bit phallic) is preventing them from going forward, so they try to push it over, with no success. They try to persuade an elderly man to help them move the rock with the help of his donkey. Their plan still fails to move the stone. Their middleclass problems and the absurd phallic rock venture gives rise to great humor.
