This chapter explores the similarities and differences between Iranian neorealism and its Italian progenitor. It shows that Iranian-style neorealism has not been homogenous, exhibiting itself in two different styles under two different political systems, and that it has been neither a fully formed film school nor a movement, but a moment of convergence in the social history of cinema.

Keywords:   Iranian cinema, Italian cinema, social history
