Scenes from a life under an authoritative regime: in just under a dozen episodes that are as apt as they are absurdly funny, the citizens of Tehran go face to face with authority figures. A man isn't allowed to name his son David (this would “strengthen a foreign culture”); a schoolgirl has to justify herself in front of the principal for riding a motorcycle with a boy; a filmmaker struggles to get a shooting permit …  “A marvel of potent understatement”, as the Hollywood Reporter writes.
