Majidi, the Iranian filmmaker with a unique humorous twist of his own fits into that Neo-Realist mold. He finds the drama of one familys fate in a seemingly absurd situation. Kerim, the father on the outskirts of Teheran, tends a herd of ostriches and is responsible for collecting their huge rare eggs, an Iranian delicacy. That job provides for his wife and two children. How he loses his low paying job is, in a manner, absurdly comic but ultimately dramatic. When his 13 year old daughter loses her hearing aid just before an important school test, he cannot afford to replace it. Today we recognize that when the primary family provider loses his or her job it can be a calamity bordering on the tragic. Poor though he is, this Iranian Dad is the sharp task master of his home; he is an excitable fierce competitor, who often at the top of his voice, rails against his wife, his two daughters and young son. Inadvertently on a trip to Teheran on his motor-bike, he finds a new career taxi-ing people around the city. Majidi uses Karims job to capture the rich social ambience of Iranian daily life in Teheran.With an Iranian twist, the resolution of this light comic drama might well have been drawn from Kafkas Metamorphosis and is a wonderfully wry Iranians commentary on the male hegemony. Vic Skolnick
