Programme category: Forest Row Film Society

Director: Asghar Farhadi, Iran 2006, 104 mins, 12

“This compelling, corrosive account of male-female relationships in today‚Äôs Tehran is tempered by genuine compassion for the individuals concerned; wisely, Farhadi never serves judgement on them in their troubled pursuit of truth, love and happiness.” Time Out

From the award winning director of A Separation comes a thoroughly engrossing and densely textured drama showing Farhadi’s cool skill in dissecting the Iranian middle classes and the unhappiness of marriage. An engrossing portrait of the eroding sanctity of three marriages set against the backdrop of the Persian New Year (Nowruz), 21 March.

“Intelligent, illuminating and directed with unflashy expertise.” Geoff Andrew
