Jadde Khaki

Panah Panahi, Iran, 2021o


A family is driving through the beautiful Iranian countryside. In the back of their rental car sits the father with his leg in a cast. The mother is trying to restrain her little boy, who is constantly climbing around and up to all kinds of mischief. Only the couple's already grown-up son doesn't say a word, sits at the wheel and looks stoically at the road. That the trip, which at first seems aimless, is more than just a harmless excursion becomes increasingly clear the further the family ventures into the mountains in the north of the country.

Visuellement éblouissant, filmé dans des paysages grandioses, ce road-movie réjouit bouleverse par l’intelligence et l’originalité avec lesquelles il traite le sujet douloureux de l’exil.

Stéphanie Belpeche

Hymne à la famille, l’amour et la vie, le premier film de Panah Panahi est une merveille du cinéma iranien.

Laurent Cambon

Panah Panahi revisite le genre du road-movie dans un beau conte d'exil, drôle, mélancolique et malicieux. Constamment surprenant, bourré d'astuces visuelles et de cadres précis comme ceux d'une bande dessinée, Hit the Road slalome sans cesse entre la comédie burlesque et la mélancolie.
