Chicken With Plums

Chicken With Plums

A film by Marjane Satrapi & Vincent Paronnaud
Starring Mathieu Amalric, Edouard Baer and Maria de Medeiros

A wonderful story of love which inspired a man’s genius and music.

Since his beloved violin was broken, Nasser Ali Khan, one of the most renowned musicians of his day, has lost all taste for life. Finding no instrument worthy of replacing it, he decides to confine himself to bed to await death. As he hopes for its arrival, he plunges into deep reveries, with dreams as melancholic as they are joyous. A romantic thriller with flashbacks and flash forwards, the pieces of the puzzle gradually fit together and the poignant secret of his life comes to light.

What Satrapi and Paronnaud have really achieved is an evocation of a lost world, much as they did in Persepolis.Variety

Both winsome and sophisticated, Chicken with Plums unfolds like a rich Persian carpet woven of memories and nostalgia. The Hollywood Reporter
