It’s all about the journey in Maryam Goormaghtigh’s warm-hearted road movie about three Iranian men living in Paris and taking one last trip through the South of France before one of them moves back to Tehran. In many ways, Before Summer Ends has all the familiar features of the male road-trip buddy movie: goofing around, beer cans piling up, sceptical female company, aimless in-car banter. But here, the result is a tender, wry view of the young Iranian male, as you’ve genuinely never seen him before.
