Director Ali Ghaffari said to ifilm in an exclusive interview that his title hooks the viewers from a few minutes “after the hanging sequence,” adding, however, that such sequence was not supposed to be included in the final version.”
That sequence could raise a question as to who the hanged man was, the director notes, adding the viewer can open the knots existing in the storyline of the flick as it follows.
Ghaffari said he likes making films with twists and mysteries to unravel along the way.
‘Restitution’ has been featured at a host of international film festivals, gaining acclaims for visual effects and scenic design.
An interesting point which came up in the interview was the flick shows some captures from the Grand Kremlin Palace in Russia.
