Episode 460: The Cow (1969)

Guest Co-Hosts: Chris Stachiw, Heather Drain

We continue our examination of the films of 1969 with a look at Dariush Mehrjui's The Cow. The film star Ezzatolah Entezami as Hassan, a man with a very high status in his village. He's the proud owner of the sole cow. When he goes away for a morning his cow mysteriously dies and the rest of the villagers conspire to cover this up by telling him that the animal has run away. Let's just say that Hassan doesn’t take the news so well.

Chris Stachiw and Heather Drain join Mike to scratch the surface on Iranian cinema.
