Cold Breath Reviews:

"Cold Breath" by Abbas Raziji is the storyline of a transgender person living in a globe in which they are forced to conform to survive. The movie was shot in the Islamic Republic of Iran, by a brave group of filmmakers who seek to mission out that societal constraints which label folks male or female do not ultimately encompass the entirety of human identity.Raziji uses symbolism that relates to Islamic law in the opening shot of the film. We hear a slow drip, and see blood (number five on the law's list of Impure Things), as it mixes with water in a bucket. The mixing of blood and water furthers the religious symbolism of impurity. Next, baby chickens are dumped into a container and covered in blue paint. Paint covered hands lead us to a room where multi-colored baby chicks are frantically running around. The perpetrator, wearing a rainbow-colored garment, looks on. The colourful chicks appear to have been transformed into something unnatural.They no longer blend in. Raziji uses the symbolism of the chick's transition in color to illustrate how unexpected changes in appearance affect perception.His cinematic test of desaturation illustrates a stark existence within strictly defined gender roles. This, in an oppressive place, where the color has been drained from daily life. The toneless environment is a stark contrast to the characters in the storyline who wear colourful clothes and have equally colourful personalities. The only person who is drab is Raziji's protagonist, who is actively working to assimilate into the environment. This person cannot present the globe their real colors because it would alter outward appearances and expectations.The protagonist seems androgynous. They appear more female than male when they are out in the world, and more male in the security of their home. However, it isn't until thirty mins into the movie that we are offered a glimpse into their inner struggle. The camera angle tilts on its side. A vertical photo in an otherwise horizontal format forces the viewer to wonder if something has gone wrong with the video; only to realize that this is a message about the skewed existence in which this person is forced to live. We hear their voice, barely making out the words as they repeat "man, man, man". Here, Raziji uses the unexpected tilt of the camera to describe the gender dysphoria experienced by a boy who was assigned female at birth. We come to realize that his whole life is based on a lie.The fact that there is no melody track except for the scenes in which he is alone and contemplating his real identity speaks to the fact that there is no true joy in his life. Another than dialogue, the sounds that are prominent throughout the movie are the crowd in the marketplace, dogs, chickens and another animal and an occasional car driving down a dirt road. The lack of melody and the another sound choices mirror the monochrome environment, adding to the feeling of oppression.It is interesting to note the storyline that Raziji chooses to present. Compared to Amazon's award-winning series "Transparent", in which the main hero struggles to "come out" to their family and is ultimately able to live as a girl (though they experience their own set of dangers), "Cold Breath" instead shows us a person who is trying to walk the tightrope as both boy and girl because there is not even a tiny possibility anyone will understand. And there is a very true danger that he would not survive.As a woman, he leads a life as a mother, which holds its own set of challenges. He gotta dress as a girl for work and keep female designated jobs that ensure him living in poverty. His daughter is critically ill and he cannot afford to receive her medical treatment. His employer wants to have an intimate relationship. He has female troubles on the surface - yet the most troubling part of his life is hidden. Still, he moves through life with dignity and steadfastness about the truth of his identity.To me, the heart of "Cold Breath" is universal. As humans, we all struggle to conform to society's expectations, and we have expectations of others which aren't everytime correct. Trans folks suffer a much more hard challenge because of long-held societal beliefs, no matter what part of the globe they inhabit. They are faced with the very true chance that they will be harmed for being who they are. The compassion and consideration that were taken in producing this groundbreaking drama are admirable. It is what filmmaking is all about. Filmmaking is an occasion to say stories that folks may never hear otherwise. Raziji's "Cold Breath" does just that.Helen Wheels/Cult Critic/CICFF
