Is it not just a movie? Well, not if you were a Mullah.
As reported by various news agencies, the Iranian MullahsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ have once again exposed to the world their limited tolerance for views that might be slightly different than theirs.
Apparently, Iran has sent the French Embassy in Tehran a letter of protest regarding the screening of an Iranian film makerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s movie, Persepolise, at the Cannes Film Festival in France.
The movie is about a child growing up in Iran after the Islamic Revolution.
The letter sent by the state-run Farabi Foundation in Iran reads, "This year the Cannes Film Festival, in an unconventional and unsuitable act, has chosen a movie about Iran that has presented an unrealistic face of the achievements and results of the glorious Islamic Revolution in some of its parts."
In other words, the Mullahs are trying to say, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Hey, we did not have a chance to cutup pieces that we didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t like you to see, before you got to see it.Ã¢â‚¬Â
