Maxx the movie on DVD
14 September 2006 | by comtekccSee all my reviews

I have seen this Iranian block buster film and I loved it.

A smash hit in Iran, MAXX is a delightful musical comedy starring a cast of fresh faces, including Farhad Ayish in the title role. In this hilarious tale of mistaken identity, Maxx, a performer in a Los Angeles night club, receives an invitation to participate in a music festival in Teran. Upon arriving in Iran, Maxx is astounded by the warm welcome and the many invitations to important cultural events. Little does he know that his invitation was originally intended for a prominent symphony conductor with a similar name. When authorities in Iran discover Maxx is a rapper, chaos erupts.
