Kamal Tabrizi’s irreverent comedy broke box-office records in Tehran before authorities, offended by the affable sacrilege that makes the film so delightful, banned it from theaters. THE LIZARD tells the story of a thief who escapes prison by posing as a cleric and, once out, performs outrageous actions.
