“Farhadi remains a master of pace and tension, slowly upping the stakes in an unsettling narrative fuelled by a lingering sense of powerlessness, paranoia and the possibility that you never entirely know the person you love.”~Screen International
Aroview: Another subtle yet powerful drama from the celebrated director of THE SEPARATION and THE PAST that replays his signature themes of fear, guilt and revenge, this time premised on the assault of a teacher's wife, its subsequent trauma and fraught plans to track down the perpetrator.
Winner the 2017 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, which Mr. Farhadi famously did not attend on account of President Trump's presiding travel ban.
4 stars (Very Good) Ideally watch Miller's Death of a Salesman first. Fine acting, great direction & complex urban sets. Similarity of Iranian lives to those in the West ridicules Trump's evil policy. Europe's silence on US plans show Western weakness & hatred of diversit~Sandy
