Modest Reception (Paziraie Sadeh)

A metaphysical black comedy that's as abrasive as it is funny. A man and a woman drive an SUV through a mountainous area of Iran. Their trunk is filled with plastic bags stuffed with money, which they offer to the poor people they encounter. They're not good Samaritans, but Satanic tempters. Before giving the money, the couple put their would-be beneficiaries through odd tests or require them to perform a degrading or immoral act. As they continue on their route, their demands get progressively more outrageous.
