At stake is a large fertilizer factory contract that would mean hundreds of jobs for a dirt poor rural province.

Also presented are the longer theatrical versions of the series' fifth and sixth films: A short film about killing and A short film about love
Nūn va-guldūn = Moment of innocence by Muḥsin Makhmalbāf( Visual )

2 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in Persian and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At age seventeen, as a member of an anti-Shah militant group, film director Mohsen Makhmalbaf was arrested for knifing a policeman and was sent to the notorious torture chamber administered by the Shah's hated SAVAK secret police. Twenty years later the policeman he wounded auditioned for a role in one of his films. From that bizarre coincidence Makhmalbaf developed a script which blends the present with the past and fuses reality and rememberances with recreations as a means of understanding the incident from both men's perspectives. As the two older men recruit young actors to play themselves on film they must deal both with cinema's ability to romanticise and falsify history and with explaining to a younger generation the complicated history of Iran prior to the 1979 revolution. As the young actors struggle to understand the hatreds of the past, they also force the older men to face their own mistakes and prejudices

"The Little Tramp punches in and wigs out inside a factory where gizmos like an employee-feeding machine may someday make the lunch hour last just 15 minutes. Bounced into the ranks of the unemployed, he teams with a street waif (Paulette Goddard) to pursue bliss and a paycheck, finding misadventures as a roller-skating night watchman, a singing waiter whose hilarious song is gibberish, a jailbird and more. In the end, as Tramp and waif walk arm and arm into an insecure future, we know they've found neither bliss nor a paycheck but, more importantly, each other. The times and satire remain timelss in Modern Times."--Container
