The sixth day of the 42nd Fajr International Film Festival (FIFF) began on Tuesday by screening “The Neptune”, a movie which reminds the family to pay more attention to the quality of the routine.
After the film was screened, the producer Siavosh Aminpour thanked the crew and the cast for their endeavor and expressed hope that the movie would be welcomed by the viewers as its story is familiar with life of most of the families in the society.
Mohammad Ebrahim Ghaffarian, the director of “The Neptune”, said his film was written by Marjan Sadati within ten months.
“We decided to make a movie for a problem, and this movie reminds us of the things to which we don’t pay attention in daily routine.”
Babak and Afsaneh are husband and wife in the story. Although they have the right to concentrate on their own lives, they are not allowed to have a child and ignore it.
The cinematic work has not been made for the children, he said, adding that the flick addresses the adults.Ghaffarian went on to say that I do care about the parents who suffer from childish features while they have a baby at the same time.
“We are faced with families who have problems. In “Neptune” there is no question of criticizing men or women; Rather, it shows us that many families in today’s world live like this family and their children have the same conditions as the child of the story. The mother of this child seeks to find her independence; But she goes the wrong way and we were not supposed to blame the mother”, stated the scriptwriter.
The 42nd edition of the FIFF kicked off in Milad Tower in west of Tehran as of February 1. The important cultural event will end on February 11.
