Are there any "Hollywood-style" movies made in Iran? - Black and Silver Camera on Brown Wooden Table

I have watched a lot of Iranian movies and I love them but they are similar in style (realistic long shots and slow cuts) and content (e.g. struggle of the society reflecting in children or seemingly mundane events). I doubt if all Iranians solely love this kind of movies. Japan, Korea, China, India, and Thailand have their commercial films besides independent art films going around in film festival circuit.

Is there a commercial movie industry in Iran making action or comedy films?

Answer 2

There are no such movies in Iran because of:

  1. The Iranian cinema is a very poor industry.
  2. Modern devices are very expensive and you cannot them find in Iran.
