This year, the Reims detective film festival (which replaces Beaune) awarded two major prizes to Iranian films: Tehran Law, interested in the 6.5 million crack addicts in the country, and Black market. The first, released in July at the cinema, marked Première by its shock treatment of this social subject. The second, signed Abbas Amini and waited on January 5 at the cinema, was also very popular with the editorial staff. It is revealed today, via a trailer also promising a tense film noir. Between his slaughterhouse filled with corpses, his “hero” out of prison and its money trafficking, she teases a particularly dark and corrupt atmosphere.
