About the Film:
Persian Screen Film Festival Presented by:
Directed by Ali Mosaffa. Iran. 2012. 88 mins. Persian with English subtitles.
Narrating this murder mystery from beyond the grave, architect Khosrow (director and star Ali Mosaffa) recalls his downfall and complicated marriage to a beautiful actress Leili (Leila Hatami). In only his second feature, Mosaffa realizes an extraordinarily rich, emotional drama brimming with invention and surprise. Partly based on Leo Tolstoy’s novella The Death of Ivan Ilyich and James Joyce’s The Dead, The Last Step has been hailed by critics across the globe for its visual inventiveness and unique narrative style. It nabbed the coveted FIPRESCI prize at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in 2013.
