Iranian Films Have Humanitarian, Psychological Message.
TEHRAN (FNA)- Born1963, Russia's Yury Solodov director of the short film Big Boy said that the few number of Iranian films he watched left a strong impression on him.
In an interview with the 30th International Film Festival for Children and Youth said: "Iranian films I watched, left a strong impression on me that I intend to continue my acquaintance with the Iranian cinema. The main message of theirs is the humanitarian message and interest in psychology."
How did you come up with such an idea for a script and a film?
The fact that I became the director of a children's film came as a surprise to me too. One of my friends told a story about his relationship with his son which was the main motivation for me to start this film. My friend's six year-old son and him are the center of the scenario. How my friend wanted to take test from his son and teach him how to become a man.
I tried to develop the script and worked on it to turn it into a movie. I am quite happy with the results and I believe my friend is even more surprised and happy with the film.
Have you watched any Iranian movies? How did your acquaintance with Iranian cinema come about?
He said: "I saw only three Iranian films, namely, Asghar Farhadi's the Salesman and the Separation, and also Mani Haghighi and Ehsan Goodarzi 's "A Dragon Arrives!". They left a strong impression on me that I intend to continue my acquaintance with the Iranian cinema. They reminded me of the cinema of the late USSR - the fact that in them the main thing is the humanitarian message and interest in psychology.
