In No Date, No Signature, acclaimed director Vahid Jalilvand, winner of Best Director prize at the 2017 Venice Film Festival, takes on a gripping psychological drama of morality and class dynamics in contemporary Iran. Forensic pathologist Dr. Nariman’s car accidentally injures a motorcyclist’s 8-year-old son. He offers to take the child to a clinic, but the father refuses his help and his money. A few days later, in the hospital where he works, Dr. Nariman learns that the boy has died under suspicious circumstances. His existential dilemma: is he responsible for the death, or did the child die of another cause, as the autopsy suggests? It’s a study in ethical nuance, filtered through class consciousness. Jalilvand coaxes brilliantly understated performances from a superb cast for this compelling, considered meditation on guilt and grief.
