  • Mohammad is sent to an apartment situated in uptown Tehran to install their satellite dishes, while having satellite TV is illegal in Iran. He arrives there with a girl named Shirin who seems to be his girlfriend and is in need of some money to repair her father's car with which she has had an accident the day before. Each of the house's residents have their own fish to fry and they also want their satellites installed as soon as possible.

  • Parisa Bakhtavar's light-hearted drama is a film full of colorful characters, and largely consists of pacy, dynamic vignettes. Linked together by the illegal satellite dishes installed on the roof of an apartment block, the vignettes wittily glimpse into the very different lives of people living in or visiting the block on a single day. Centering on the luckless Mammad's efforts to fix and install satellites amidst the chaotic behavior of residents, and the mysterious Shirin's dealings with Mammad and the residents of the building, Tambourine is a thoroughly enjoyable romp.
