Rhino Season
aka Fasle kargadan
First screened in March 2019
Director: Bahman Ghobadi. Cast: Behrouz Vossoughi, Monica Bellucci, Caner Cindoruk, Yilmaz Erdogan, Belçim Bilgin, Beren Saat, Arash Labaf. Screenplay: Bahman Ghobadi.

Twitter Capsule: Visual and narrative ideas fairly heavy for Ghobadi. Sobering, inspired by life, but maybe a bit overdone all around.

VOR:   Bold choice of subject. Risky with montage. A difficult project to make, in many ways. Some tropes still feel familiar. Heavy Ceylan influence.
