The film ‘Atomic Heart’ directed by Ali Ahmadzadeh and produced by Seyed Amir Seyedzadeh will be screened across the country from May 31.

The movie is finally coming to domestic cinemas four years after it was produced in 2013, ILNA reported.

During this time, it took part in several international festivals including the 17th Buenos Aires International Independent Film Festival in Argentina, the 65th Berlin Film Festival in Germany, the 16th San Diego Asian Film Festival in the US and Zurich Film Festival in Switzerland.

However, until now, it was not granted screening permit by the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance because it insisted that the film needed some modifications for local release. The director and producer made the revisions, and delivered the film to the ministry two years ago, in 2015, but the permit was still not issued despite the changes.

But now after approval, the 90-minute film is ready to hit the screens. Given its delay in local screening, the movie has caused much curiosity among film fans eager to see it; further considering the stellar cast of Mohammadreza Golzar, Taraneh Alidoosti, Pegah Ahangarani, Mehrdad Sedighian and Reza Behboudi, as well as the new type of storytelling and structure, it is said that the film will be well received by the public.

The movie takes place in one single night. It narrates an enigmatic story of three friends who are on their way back home from a party at night. Following a sudden crash, they meet a mysterious man who keeps reappearing throughout the rest of the film.
