It’s a musical and powerful story with compositions by Olivier Bernet

Teheran, 1958. Since his beloved violin was broken, Nasser Ali-Khan, one of the most renowned musicians of his day, has lost all taste for life. Finding no instrument worthy of replacing it, he decides to confine himself to bed to await death. As he hopes for its arrival, he plunges into deep reveries, with dreams as melancholic as they are joyous, talking him back to his youth and even to a conversation with Azrael, the Angel of death, who reveals the future of his children … As pieces of the puzzle gradually fit together, the poignant secret of his life comes to light: a wonderful story of love which inspired his genius and his music…

The film is directed by Marjane Satrapi (writer and director of Persepolis) and Vincent Paronnaud. It stars French comedians Mathieu Almaric and Edouard Baer in the respective roles of Nasser Ali-Khan and Azrael.
