COMMENT: Golshifteh Farahani played in Jim Jarmucsh's film "Paterson", Taraneh Alidoosti in "The Salesman" and Sahar Dolatshahi in "Inversion". The Iranian director Asghar Farhadi and actor Shahab Hosseini won the Best Manuscript and Best Actor respectively during the awards ceremony on May 22.
 Golshifteh Farahani is the first Iranian actor after the 1979 Revolution who has played in many major Hollywood productions. She started her acting career in theater at the age of six and has always maintained a strong link with theater. She was 14 when she received her first film role in "The Pear Tree" (1998). She won the award for best female actor in the international part of the Fajr Film Festival, which immediately made her one of the stars of Iranian film. Since then she has played in more than 15 films, many of which have been shown at international festivals.
Among her latest films are Bahman Ghobadi's "Half Moon" (2006) (winner of the Golden Seashell at San Sebastián Film Festival in 2006), Dariush Mehrjuis's controversial "The MusicMan" (2007), still banned in Iran, and Rasool Mollagholis "Poor's M for Mother ”(2006), which after a great success in Iran was chosen to represent Iran in the competition for best foreign film in the Academy Awards in 2008. After playing in the" Body of Lies "(2008) by Ridley Scott, Golshifteh became, as mentioned, the first Iranian star in a major Hollywood production. Then she was refused to leave her country. Her latest film in Iran, "About Elly" (2009), won a Silver Bear in Berlin and the Best Narrative Feature Award for "Tribeca" (2009).

- Don't talk about Golshifteh
She also speaks fluent French and English and now lives in Paris.
Golshifteh is the first Iranian actor to break the taboo and was naked in front of the camera. She said that "I'm not an activist. I shouldn't break the taboo. I just want to work as a professional and international actor and it's not important to me what the Iranian state thinks and says ". She starred in Jim Jarmusch's film, "Pirates of the Caribbean "'s latest version; she plays the lead role as Anna Karenina in Paris, which obviously should have been featured in Iranian media. However, it is forbidden to write about her because she is no longer a good girl for the Islamic state. She is herself now. A free women in international stage.
Forced dress code


The other two actors, Taraneh and Sahar, live and work in Iran. Therefore, they cannot walk on the red carpet without a hijab. They were forced to use a particular dress code. Choosing a dress that is elegant for the public at the world's most famous film festival is impossible. They must follow Islamic restrictions. This is a challenge for Iranian women's presence in international arenas. If they do not adhere to Muslim restrictions, they cannot continue to work in Iran. They have to move out, such as Golshifteh. When the two tried to dress in unusual hijabs, it created much debate. Some were glad they tried, while conservatives said the hijabs were not enough Islamic and many spotted and said the two actors were wearing curtains.
Restrictions are limitless
An Iranian actor cannot take off the hijab in film and theater even though they sleep in a scene. Who sleeps with a real-life scarf? Many who have seen Iranian movies ask: - Do Iranian women sleep with scarves at home? Of course I answer no. The question continues: - Why do they sleep with scarves in movies?

What can I answer to such a question? Neither I nor Iranians most are not used to women sleeping with scarves. This is an absurd order for female actors, as much as the rule that they must not touch male actors even if he is to play their son's role.

Asghar Farhadis miracle
Asghar Farhadi now has a long list of international awards from American "Oscar" to Berlin's "Gold Bear" and the prices in Cannes. His films are socially engaged. His latest film in Cannes is about the rape of a married woman. It must be amazing to watch this movie. It must be a miracle that Farhadi did this during the restrictive Iranian censorship. How has Tarane played the role of a victim of rape? How has Farhadi directed the movie with these restrictions? I hope we can watch the movie one day here in Haugesund as Taxi Tehran.
Donald Sutherland got Hijab
Cannes had an Iranian woman in the jury group, film producer Katayoun Shahabi. She had to get the hijab and could not greet the others in the usual cordial way with hug and of course kiss. In the 65th Cannes film festival, the Iranian actor Leila Hatami was in the jury. She squeezed and kissed Gilles Jacob and became strongly attacked afterwards
