Directed by Payman Moaadi. Iran. 2013. 91 mins. Persian with English subtitles.
Multi-hyphenate filmmaker Payman Mooadi (best-known for his role in A Separation) makes his directorial debut with this heartfelt domestic drama about Roya (Mahnaz Afshar), a piano teacher forced to reevaluate her life and marriage after discovering that her husband has been hiding an affair. When she meets a young musician (played by indie actor Saber Abar), things become yet more complicated and she is forced to make a difficult choice. Beautifully lensed in black and white, Snow on the Pines scored the Best Actress award for Mahnaz Afshar and Best Film and Best Script awards for Mooadi at the 2013 Iranian Film Critics Guild Awards. The film was also the audience favorite at the Los Angeles–based Noor Iranian Film Festival.
