For a mother and a little girl left alone in an empty flat in 1988 Tehran, the air raid sirens are the last thing that should scare them: an eerie entity wants to drag them into the primordial darkness from where it came. Imagine if Asghar Farhadi made a purebred horror movie, which also worked as a political allegory, and you’ll realise why this admirable debut takes flight, escaping the narrow genre confines and becoming high art.
