Mohsen Makhmalbat’s semi-autobiographical account of his experience when, as a teenager, he stabbed a policeman at a protest rally, conveys that history and truth are very often a matter of perspective. Twenty years on, as Makhmalbat tracks down the officer in an attempt to make amends, the event in question is told, rather differently, from both parties’ perspectives in this wry Iranian-French comedy.
