Restaurant owners lurk around a student assembly holding a kite competition near a lake, during the winter solstice.
Shahram Mokri sets up his cinematographic system with this long sequence shot (140 minutes) that allows for temporal digressions, with incredible directing and editing talent. Too easily called the first Iranian slasher movie, Fish & Cat is above all a singular film, the 2013 Jury's Special Prize in Venice, imagined by its author as a film equivalent to M.C. Escher's paintings.
