Agnès Varda b. 1928
Plaisir d'amour en Iran
35mm, 1976
Starring: Valérie Mairesse, Ali Raffi

Made at a time when Iran had a seemingly revolving door for incoming European directors and bottomless funding for their projects, Plaisir d'amour en Iran is a short, sort of love story between a handsome Iranian (Ali Raffi) and a visiting French woman (Valérie Mairesse). The film was shot at the Shah Masjed in romantic Esfehan.
