Crafted with powerful acting and a wry sense of humor, Persian Lessons tells the story of Gilles who agrees to teach a language he does not know—Farsi—to Klaus Koch. The Nazi camp commandant is planning on a post-war move to Iran and mistakenly believes that Gilles is Persian. Although the young Belgian Jew teaches the officer nearly 600 words, he fears that his invented “Farsi” will be revealed for what it is…gibberish.
