Summary: Since his beloved violin was broken, Nasser Ali Khan, one of the most renowned musicians of his day, has lost all taste for life.
Review: From the creators of the magnificent “Persepolis”, “Chicken with Plums” is a drama narrated in a typical French way and adorned with illustrations. It tells the story of a great Iranian musician, who decides to die in his home bed, after having found some adversities in his private life. The story was promising but not completely satisfying, only arousing some sensation on us in the final scenes, where the meaning of the story was totally unfolded. I would say that it had a determined approach without being fantastic or being able to reach our emotions deeply. Even though, I recommend it for the fans of French light cinema.
