The Salesman

Drama, Thriller 2h 4m 2016

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.

Drawing parallels between post-war New York and contemporary Tehran, THE SALESMAN is a powerful social critique that touches on family, gender, and the chilling psychology of vengeance.

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.

“Farhadi remains a master of pace and tension, slowly upping the stakes in an unsettling narrative fueled by a lingering sense of powerlessness, paranoia and the possibility that you never entirely know the person you love.” ~ Screen International.
