User reviews on Fifi Howls from Happiness (Fifi az khoshhali zooze mikeshad)
Mitra Farahani's lyrical doc**entary explores the enigma of provocative artist Bahman Mohassess, the so-called "Persian Picasso," whose acclaimed paintings and sculptures dominated pre-revolutionary Iran. Irreverent and uncompromising, a gay man in a hostile world, Mohassess had a conflicted relationship with his homeland-revered by elites in the art scene and praised as a national icon, only to be censored later by an oppressive regime. This film was absolutely wonderful and i have enjoyed every second of it. Interestingly, the film mainly takes place at the artist’s apartment in Rome, but it never feels static and that is quite incredible. Overall, it is an amazing doc**entary that will entertain you and inform you in the same time, I loved it!
