    Iranian actress Leila Hatami's kiss at Cannes Film Festival angers authorities

    Iranian actress Leila Hatami has angered authorities in Tehran by kissing the Cannes Film Festival's president on the cheek, an act seen as an affront to the "chastity" of the Islamic republic's women.

    A photograph carried by Iranian media shows Hatami kissing Gilles Jacob at the opening of this year's festival.

    "Those who attend intentional events should take heed of the credibility and chastity of Iranians, so that a bad image of Iranian women will not be demonstrated to the world," deputy culture minister Hossein Noushabadi said, in quotes carried on the website of state broadcaster IRIB.

    "[The] Iranian woman is the symbol of chastity and innocence."

    Hatami's "inappropriate presence" at the festival was "not in line with our religious beliefs".



    Born into a family with a background in cinema, Hatami gained worldwide fame for her role in Asghar Farhadi's A Separation, which won the 2012 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

    She is on the jury this year at the annual Cannes festival in southern France, but lives in Iran.

    According to Iran's interpretation of Islamic (sharia) law, in place since the 1979 revolution, a woman is not allowed to have physical contact with a man outside her family.

    Beard and stone seller: Stone, sir?

    Mother: No, they've got a lot there, lying around on the ground.

    Beard and stone seller: Oh, not like these, sir. Look at this! Feel the quality of that, that's craftmanship, sir.

    Mother: Hmm...all right, we'll have two with points and...a big flat one.

    Just remembered I saw this last year. Painful story with very thoughtful character development and dialogue and a unique insight into the Iranian justice system.

    Ironically many of the most aclaimed Iranian cinema films were actually produced/directed by women I think I remember reading.

    An excellent movie. A lot of people who saw it (including myself) were surprised by the every day life of ordinary people in today Iran.
    The things we regret most is the things we didn't do

    Is he Persian or Afghani?

    Is that photo staged?
