Iran's most expensive movie, "Muhammad", which chronicles the childhood of the Muslim prophet, opened nationwide.(rcinet).
‘Muhammad: The Messenger of God’, a film seven years in the making, had its world premier at the Montreal World Film Festival this morning. A poorly attended press screening was the fulfilment of the commitment director, Majid Majidi made to the festival, despite pressure in Iran to show it sooner.
Two sold-out screenings in Iran followed quickly on the Montreal debut, to an apparently enthusiastic response, according to director Majid Majidi. The new 190-minute film focuses on Muhammad’s childhood, careful not to show his face. The movie puts him in various scenes and relies on his point-of-view and the family members around him to convey the story. Read the full 'story' here.
