Bad ma ra khahad bord = The wind will carry us by Abbas Kiarostami( Visual )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in Persian and Faroese and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A group of men from the city traverse the rural Iranian countryside, looking for the village of Siah Dareh, following directions such as "turn left at the big tree on top of the hill," seemingly lost. The driver, respectfully called "Engineer" by the villagers, is in this remote location to record a funeral ritual that will follow the death of a woman reputed to be more than 100 years old. As he waits and she rallies, he becomes a figure of some amusement in the valley--whenever his cell phone beeps, he charges to higher ground in his Land Rover in order to get proper reception. And as he waits to complete his task, he is transformed from a nosy outsider into a reverent observer, seeing all the transient beauty and eternal wonder of the human experience in one poor, small, rural village

Hussein is a pizza deliveryman in Tehran. Wounded in the Iraq-Iran war, he suffers from an unnamed illness for which he takes "medication." When not delivering pizza, he and his naïve, talkative friend Ali are petty thieves. Hussein is engaged to Ali's sister. His job brings him repeatedly to the doorways of Tehran's well-heeled, Westernized citizens, who treat him as though he were invisible. Hussein is upset by being treated like a second-class citizen, especially after bravely serving in the war. After being turned away by the owner of a posh jewelry story, and then treated with coldness and condescension on a return visit, Hussein decides that the humiliation is not to be borne.

"Die Ermittlungen eines Privatdetektivs in China führen dazu, dass eine zuvor glückliche Ehe scheitert: Der gelangweilte Ehemann war fremdgegangen, und das auch noch mit einem anderen Mann. Doch auch die neue Beziehungskonstellation ist nicht von langer Dauer. Politisch aneckendes Liebesdrama des im Westen geschätzten, in China verfolgten Regisseurs Lou Ye. Dabei sind dessen freizügige Liebesgeschichten auch für vermeintlich liberale westliche Gesellschaften unbequem und sowohl formal als auch inhaltlich eine Herausforderung." []
