No Bears tells two parallel love stories. In both stories, pairs of lovers are plagued by hidden but unavoidable obstacles, the power of superstition and the mechanisms of power.
Despite years of house arrest, a professional ban and now a prison sentence, Jafar Panahi manages to astonish the world with his brilliant cinematography.
★★★★ "Piercingly self-aware study of film-making and fear." – The Guardian
"Panahi is among the world’s great filmmakers refusing to be silenced by authoritarian rule." – The Hollywood Reporter
