The Hunter

92 minutes

After his wife and child are lost in a shootout during a political rally, an ex-con kills two policemen and runs away into the forest. Well-meaning but non-descript drama whose alleged reflection of the Iranian political events of the Summer of 2009 gets lost in an insufficiently scripted and turgidly handled revenge melodrama.
