“This Is Not a Film” — currently at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes

This clandestine documentary, shot partially on an iPhone and smuggled into France in a cake for a last-minute submission to Cannes, depicts the day-to-day life of acclaimed director Jafar Panahi (Offside, The Circle) during his house arrest in his Tehran apartment. While appealing his sentence – six years in prison and a 20 year ban from filmmaking – Panahi is seen talking to his family and lawyer on the phone, discussing his plight with Mirtahmasb and reflecting on the meaning of the art of filmmaking. — (C) Palisades Tartan

This marks the first time I’ve used the tag “cake smuggling” on this site. Original and creative? Definitely.
