The film “Bodyguard” tells the story of an old war hero assigned with the task of protecting one of the country’s most important assets: a young genius working at Iran’s atomic energy agency for producing peaceful nuclear energy. Faced with an imminent threat of assassination, things only get worse as the young genius refuses to allow his bodyguard to protect him.
The director, Hatamikia, was born in 1961 in Tehran to Iranian Azerbaijani parents. He dropped out of the Art University where he studied script writing. He began his directing career with the film The Identity in 1986 and some short films and documentaries about the Iran–Iraq War.
