Directed by: Panah Panahi
Staring: Hassan Madjooni & Pantea Panahiha
A charming, sharp-witted, and deeply moving drama. Hit the Road takes the tradition of the Iranian road-trip movie and adds unexpected twists and turns. It follows a family of four, two middle-aged parents and their sons, as they drive across the Iranian countryside. Over the course of the trip, they bond over memories of the past and grapple with fears of the unknown. Unspoken tensions arise and the film builds emotional momentum as it slowly reveals the furtive purpose of their journey.
A far-reaching fable of connection and separation, handled with disarming wit and tenderness. Witty, heart breaking and humane.
