I have even forgotten your face.

It seems like you have never been there.

Written and Directed by: Ali Mosaffa

Sometime I have to look at your picture.

The Last Step

"Better pass boldly into that other world,"

"In the full glory of some passion,"...

"Than fade and wither",


"...And wither dismally".

"...And wither dismally".

"Than fade and wither dismally".

"Generous tears filled Gabriel's eyes"


Gabriel. Yes.

"...Filled Gabriel's eyes"

"He had never felt like that himself...

He approved me, no?

...towards any woman"

You know Doctor, I don't like to...

talk about the things out of medical field.

"But he knew that such a feeling

must be love."


"The tear"... "Tears"?


"The tears gathered more thickly in his eyes"

"And in the partial darkness"...

Yes, he had seen it.

"G... Gabriel?"

Gabriel. You said two times, it's a Name...

It's some one's name.

"...Gathered in his eyes."

Yes... Where is your Id Cart?

In that closet. There.

Yes Doctor.

I'm used to talk about details with patients.

"A few light taps upon the pane...

...made him turn to the window".

"It had begun to snow again"...

Do you want me to read the rest of it later?

Yes, in fact it was the day before he died.

How much did you read?

An Hour.

You had it declared to Khosrow?

More than an hour.

Yes, it was like his wish to die this way.

The Story of my death maybe starts here.

From the day we had to meet Amin in the caf

and I made a prediction.

I turned back so your prediction comes true!



What are you laughing at?

At Khosrow who thinks he's a predictor.

Yeah, and you ruined it Amin.

You didn't say

your lines.

Even Before my death

I was confusing the chronology of events.

Now all the future is entangled in the past?

So don't mind the chronology.

I have even forgotten your face...


I'm really sorry!

I don't know why it happens.


Excuse me.

Can we have a break for tea?

Amir, Give a break for tea.

Of Course.

Bring Water too, please!

Do you want me to empty the room, Ma'am?

No. I can go out myself.

Leili jan, Look at your nails,

it stops your laughter.

How are you Mister Kiaei?

You were standing up all the time.

Such a difficult location for shooting a film

What happened? Anyone made her nervous?

No, It's only 3 weeks after her loss.

We don't insist

She says acting's good for her

Maybe she has problem with him?

Who? You talk about mister ghost?

No she has no problem with him.

No problem...

I am worried about the part when...

You are not still dead.

Do you want me to talk to her?

It'd be great if you do that.

Excuse me, your laughter stops

if you look at your nails.


These people think you can't concentrate...

because I don't stand beside the camera.


What then?

I don't know what's wrong.

What should we do?

I wish I could stand beside the camera myself

In my role.

Your husband's ghost.

How about calling Doctor Amin?

Maybe he says that it hasn't been your fault.

Excuse me?


My Telephone... is it with you?

Yes. One moment!

Here you are ma'am. Please.

Thank you.

You have to say:
One day after I'm dead,

my nails still grow...

...And my hair and my beard.

It seems like they don't know

about my death.

Yes, that was it.

One day after I'm dead,

my nails still grow...

...And my hair and my beard.

It seems like they don't know

about my death.

It seems like they don't know about my death.

Say it!

It's your turn. Didn't you memorize it?
