DUBAI - Oscar-winning best picture "Argo",
about a CIA mission to rescue American diplomats from Tehran
after the Islamic revolution, is anti-Iranian, Iran's culture
minister said on Monday in a news agency report.
Also, it isn't any good, the minister added.
"This anti-Iran film lacks any artistic aspects and it is a
very weak film from an artistic perspective and we don't expect
anything else from the enemy," Culture and Islamic Guidance
Minister Mohammad Hosseini
said, according to the semi-official
"Argo", based on a true story, was voted Best Film on Sunday
after winning a host of other Hollywood awards.
The Iran hostage drama also won best film editing and best
adapted screenplay for its tale of the CIA mission to rescue six
US diplomats from Tehran
shortly after the Islamic Revolution
under the cover of making a fake Hollywood film.
