Il cerchio = The circle by Jafar Panahi( Visual )

42 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A woman is afraid to tell her pregnant daughter's in-laws that the expected male child did not arrive--it is a girl instead. A group of women recently released from prison can't escape from being prisoners. A destitute mother tries to abandon the daughter she can't provide for. The police pick up a prostitute while her customers go free. In the fundamentalist theocracy of Iran, these women have all committed an eternal crime: being female. Surrounded by suffering and oppression, the world closes in on these women, limiting those choices that haven't already been made for them, along the narrow, tragic paths of Iranian womanhood

6 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in Persian and English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acclaimed Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi (This is Not a Film) bravely defies a twenty-year government ban on filmmaking to create a masterpiece. In a secluded house by the sea, a screenwriter hides from the world with only his dog as company. The tranquility is abruptly broken one night by the arrival of a young woman fleeing from the authorities. Refusing to leave, she takes refuge in the house. But come dawn, another unexpected presence will change everything. A highly self-reflexive work about both the act of creation and the desire to self-destruct, this powerful film illustrates the difficulty of being an artist in a highly censored society.. Silver Bear Winner for Best Screenplay and nominated for the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival.. "Critic's Pick! A mischievous, Pirandellian entertainment. It is also an allegory, dark but not despairing, of the creative spirit under political pressure, and of the ways the imagination can be both a refuge and a place of confinement." - The New York Times. " * * * * * (Five out of five stars)!. Banned Iranian director Jafar Panahi is back with another brilliant filmed-in-secret film. Absolutely stunning... The journey is often challenging, but the rewards – heady, emotional, provocative and invigorating – are endless." - Time Out

5 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in Persian and English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A widow's effort to run a truck stop diner near the Iran-Turkey border becomes a lesson in stifling patriarchy. Taking on gender and geography, the film deals with physical and metaphorical borders. A strong script, nuanced acting, and a sharply delineated sociopolitical sense make it as enjoyable as it is intelligent."
