A Separation

Separation

A film by Asghar Farhadi
Starring Peyman Moaadi, Leila Hatami and Sareh Bayat

Lies may lead to truth.

Set in contemporary Iran, A Separation is a compelling drama about the dissolution of a marriage. Simin wants to leave Iran with her husband Nader and their daughter but when he refuses to leave his ailing father she sues for divorce. Her request denied, Simin returns to her parents’ home and Nader hires a young woman to assist with his father’s care. However, when he discovers that the new maid has been lying to him, he realizes that there is more on the line than just his marriage.

DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT
I think A Separation is a detective story without any detectives. The audience is the one in charge of solving the puzzles; there will be as many answers as audiences. The film raises questions instead of imposing ideas and answers; everyone will focus on the most relevant point according to their own character and emotions. I feel like the time where directors were superior to their public, acting like an advisor or a messenger is past. At the same time, as viewers tend to be less passive and more involved in the story, they choose the angle from which they look at the film. That’s why I let the audience be the film detective. – Asghar Farhadi

Rivetingly told. Grips you like a great thriller.Vogue
