Iran's ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance has authorized limited release of "Parviz", a dark Iranian comedy drama, which has been acclaimed in several international events.

"We prefer that the film is screened at cinema complexes," producer Saeid Armand told the Persian service of ISNA on Saturday.

The Culture Ministry had previously refused to authorize the film, claiming that it is "harmful to the society".

Directed Majid Barzegar, the film is about a man in his fifties who has lived his entire life in his father's home and has never had a job. His quiet routine suddenly comes apart when his father decides to remarry and tells him to move out.

Starring Levon Haftvan, Homeira Nonahali and Mahmud Behruzian, "Parviz" has been screened at several international events.

It won the Silver Apricot, the runner-up award, at the 10th Golden Apricot International Film Festival in Yerevan, Armenia this year in July.
