FILM INFORMATION

Synopsis Just one day from completing their military training, three conscripts desert their camp and escape into the frozen wilderness of Northern Iran. Travel through this mountainous, snowbound region is dangerous, but "those three" opt for the independence it promises and must now forge their way through an uncertain landscape, with only friendship to see them through. In this austere and mesmerizing debut feature, director Naghi Nemati's attention to the minutiae of human relationships is a quiet and deliberate meditation on the value of responsibility, connection and sacrifice.

About the Director Naghi Nemati was born in Ardebil, Iran in 1977. He is a graduate of Film Directing from Soureh College of Isafahan. In 1993 he began making short films, the first of which, Like The Umbrella of the Kids, received several awards and screened successfully at festivals worldwide. He has enjoyed a multifaceted career in film, having held several different positions, including scriptwriter, editor, actor and photographer. Those Three is his first feature film.

REVIEWS

“Minimalist in the best way, 'Those Three' is an involving chamber drama about a trio of disgruntled army conscripts who lose their bearings, both psychological and physical, in a featureless snowscape. Driven as much by its tech side as by its performances and dialogue, this chilling first feature by Iranian shortsmaker Naghi Nemati should receive a warm welcome by discerning fest auds worldwide.” –Variety

“Naghi Nemati's assured, poetic debut proves that the Iranian talent factory is still up and running. This austerely-shot existential odyssey about three soldiers lost in a snowy wasteland seems tailor-made to illustrate Fellini's claim that ‘cinema uses the language of dreams.’” –Screen Daily

"Stark, beautiful imagery, thoughtful bursts of vitality and humor, a puzzling narrative structure, and a fine cast contribute to a deeply moving art film." -FlixView
