A Few Days Later Details


A woman becomes quietly frustrated with her life and surroundings in this drama from Iranian director and actress Niki Karimi. Shahrzad (Karimi) works as a graphic designer for a firm in Tehran owned by Tabesh (Ehsan Amani), While Tabesh often praises Shahrzad as one of his best employees, he's also saddled her with a full slate of responsibilities as a designer and photographer, overseeing other employees, and instructing the company's new hires. Work is tiring for Shahrzad, and home life isn't much better -- she can barely stand to listen to the many telephone messages left by her boyfriend Mahmood (Hessam Nourani), she has lost interest in her ailing son, and she's infuriated with her neighbor who insists on parking his new SUV in her spot. Shahrzad's only diversions seem to be watching television and driving around the city, and her only friend at work, Ghazaleh (Niloufar Khoshkholgh) is puzzled by her constant emotional funk. When both her son and father fall seriously ill, she's forced to make important decisions about their futures, which she isn't sure she can handle. A Few Days Later (aka Chand Rooz Ba'd) received its North American premiere at the 2006 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
