No Entry for Men

Vorood Aghayan Mamnoo

"There’s something irresistible about this comic farce set in an all-girls high school that has never permitted a man to cross the threshold. Against her better judgment, sternly protective spinster principal Ms. Darabi is forced to hire a male substitute teacher to coach her chemistry team for the big tournament against an all-boys school. Chaos ensues, and it’s played for laughs galore, with every goofy battle-of-the-sexes stereotype dusted off and made new again in an Iranian context. First-time director Rambod Javan is one of Iran’s most popular TV comedy stars."
—Gene Siskel Film Center
