With A Man of Integrity, Mohammad Rasoulof offers a rare voice of dissidence from within the Iranian film canon.
Set in rural northern Iran, this film details the brutal struggle of Reza, an educated husband and father, as he seeks repayment after his goldfish nursery is poisoned by an unnamed corporation. In a spiralling parable of corruption and misfortune, Rasoulof poses the question, is it possible to maintain an honest, middle ground in the face of a debased society? Or, in the face of systematic oppression, must the suppressed ultimately join the suppressor simply to survive?
