Sib / The Apple (1998) DVD5
Based on a true story.
In the poor section of south Tehran, 12-year-old twin daughters, Massoumeh and Zahra, are locked in their one-room house, kept from going outside, from attending school, from any contact with the outside world, left unwashed, barely able to speak except in gurgles, and are without friends. The father is a 65-year-old impoverished, poorly educated, unemployed religious fundamentalist, who gets handouts from people who ask him to pray for them.
The story caught the eye of 17-year-old Samira Makhmalbaf, the daughter of the famous director Mohsen Makhmalbaf. She co-wrote a loose scenario with her father, and then, in just eleven days, directed The Apple. What makes this dramatization especially remarkable is that she asked the actual people to play themselves in the movie - and they agreed.
