Riveting … A disquieting but profoundly satisfying movie.”


A prominent medical examiner believes he might be responsible for a child’s death in the gripping second feature of Iranian arthouse filmmaker Vahid Jalilvand. Dr. Nariman (Amir Aghaee) is driving home one night when he is involved in a seemingly minor traffic accident with a motorcycle carrying Moosa (Navid Mohammadzadeh) and family. No one appears more than slightly injured, but when the body of Moosa’s son turns up in the morgue several days later, the doctor faces a major moral dilemma. Jalilvand’s well-acted, elegantly-shot film spins a complex drama out of themes of class conflict, guilt, and grief. No Date, No Signature won the New Directors Competition at the Chicago festival, and the prizes for Best Director and Actor (Mohammadzadeh) in the Horizons section of Venice.
