About 111 Girls


79 min minutes

A hapless government emissary roams the Iranian desert in search of the women of the title, a gaggle of desperate Kurds who have threatened to take drastic measures if their demand for husbands aren’t met immediately. Surprisingly goofy for much of the running time —a hilarious bit involving roadside assistance verges on Cannonball Run territory—which makes the somber bits sting all the more when they arrive. The debuting director, whose brother made the celebrated A Time for Drunken Horses, does her family proud. (ANDREW WRIGHT)
