The Legend of Love -Tcherike-ye Hooram

Farhad Mehranfar – Iran – 2001


CHF 12.90 / EUR 11.90

Set among the high cliffs of western Iran in the heart of Kurdistan, The Legend of Love tells the story of Khazar, a female doctor who sets out on a journey searching for Hooram, the man she loves. Once a medical student, Hooram has quit school to work at a clinic for the victims of the Iran-Iraq war. Khazar carries with her a tape recording he made explaining his departure. When she plays it, he appears in front of her. The journey takes her through magical rituals and myths of Kurdish culture, among them the Kurdish «legend of love» which gives the film its title. The result is a remarkably rich portrait of Kurdish history and culture set in spectacular landscapes. Above all it confronts the problem of Kurdish isolation and marginalization.
