Amani, member of the SAVAK – the Shah’’s secret police – marries Laleh, a doctor who takes care of the injured revolutionaries. When Amani secretly reports Laleh’s brother to the authorities, she becomes suspicious of him and starts investigating her husband. Despite its prorevolutionary statement, “The Red Line” was censored and has only been officially shown for a few years. The script was written by Bahram Beizai, also a pioneer of the Iranian “Nouvelle Vague”. Khosrow Shakibai (1944-2008), later one of the most popular Iranian actors, had his first small cinema role in this film.
