Derakhte Golabi (1998) AKA The Pear Tree


As a renowned author, Mahmoud feels pressure to compose his next great novel, but he is suffering from writer’s block. He harkens back to a happier time when he was a shy, awkward 11-year-old on his family’s lush estate in Tehran. He recalls his 14-year-old cousin, a tomboy who is nonetheless a ravishing beauty. She revels in the power that she has over him. That adolescent girl of long ago—or the memory of her—becomes the muse that inspires him.

    Hard to take this load of old toss seriously. The female lead is pretty but can not act. She poses and speaks. That is not acting. Half as long and less pretentious writing would possibly have saved it. But self indulgence is rife in the movie industry.

    Thank you for featuring these beautiful and mostly neglected films by a master director. Bravo!
