Modest Reception: In this comedic drama, a mysterious pair from Tehran travel the mountainous countryside in their Lexus coupe to push big bags of money on the locals. This turns out to be not so easy, but fascinating to watch, as the cagey couple invent increasingly brazen stratagems to place cash in the hands of the wary, proud or indifferent. 2012. Iran. 100 min. Not Rated. Subtitles. Directed by Mani Haghighi.
