Iranian feature film ‘Hattrick’ has swept awards at the 2019 Malaysia International Film Festival (MIFFest).
The flick written and directed by Ramtin Lavvafipour succeeded to take home three awards of the festival which are the Best Actor in a supporting role, the Best Screenplay and the Best Film.
The recipients of the awards have been Saber Abar, Ramtin Lavvafipour and Majid Mottalebi respectively.
The 84-minute feature starts with Lida and her husband, Farzad, attending a party where they see their friend Keyvan and his new friend Raha.
On the way back home, the four in Farzad’s car have an accident but a question mark hangs over whether they have hit a person or an object.
The next setting is Raha’s home where she lives alone. The friends being in that house together is the beginning of many mysteries to unravel.
“A dull quote says people do not change overnight as we fail to look at them every so often,” a brief synopsis of the film reads.
The 3rd edition of the Malaysia International Film Festival held awards ceremony under the name of Golden Global Awards on July 20.
