Esmail (Ardalan Esmaili) is a handsome young Iranian immigrant living in Denmark, who is desperately searching for a bride so he can become a citizen. Night after night he puts on the same suit and hits the Copenhagen bar scene hoping to turn the next woman he sees into his future spouse. But amidst a series of fleeting relationships and failed one night stands, Esmail meets Sara (Soho Rezanejad), a beautiful Danish-Iranian woman who makes him question everything about himself and what he is doing.
The award-winning film THE CHARMER is "A sharply crafted drama that has elements of noirish suspense [and] … offers an incisive, penetrating look at the psychological disorientation and dilemmas of people caught between cultures. "(RogerEbert.com)
