Dariush Mehrjui's The Cow possesses the same beauty and simplicity which is associated with the great films of the Italian neorealism movement. It is the story of a small village in Iran, where Hassan lives. Hassan cherishes his cow more than anything else in the world.
While he is away, his cow mysteriously dies. The villagers try to convince Hassan that the cow has only wandered off, and is perhaps alive. Grief striken, Hassan begins to believe that he himself is his beloved bovine.
The Cow won great acclaim at the Venice Film Festival, after being smuggled out of Iran in 1971. It was twice voted as the best Iranian film ever made, by a survey of Iranian film critics.
