Filmfest 2016

In 1970s Iran. Hibat is active in the Communist resistance to the Shah, which lands him in prison for seven years of torture and solitary. On release, he meets nurse Fereshteh and falls in love, but the Iranian Revolution 1979 forces them to flee to Paris, where they continue to fight the Ayatollah’s regime and struggle to find a new home.

“French stand-up star Kheiron turns the camera on his own inspiring origins in ALL THREE OF US, a cleverly handled family dramedy that traces the actor-director’s roots from the dog days of the Iranian dictatorship to the dicey suburbs of Paris. Stronger in its harrowing, and sometimes hilarious, first part than in its rather undramatic conclusion, this impressive first feature nonetheless highlights the talents of a comedian who’s not afraid to look danger in the face and laugh about it.” –Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter
