An original blend of suspense, horror, wry observation and meditation on time A real-life case of a restaurant that served human flesh serves as the gruesome starting point for this uniquely ambitious and mesmerising mixture of surrealism and naturalism. In a tour-de-force single take, the camera follows various people on the periphery of a lake in a remote wooded area of Iran, where a group of young people have come to take part in a kite-flying contest. Suspense builds as the visitors cross paths with menacing locals. [12A]
