A Separation is an utterly compelling and profound film that focuses on a contemporary Iranian middle-class couple who separate, and the intrigues which follow. Nominated for two Academy Awards including Best Screenplay and Best Foreign Language Film; the film has also received the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film, the Golden Bear for Best Film and the Silver Bears for Best Actress (Leila Hatami) and Best Actor ( Peyman Maadi) at the 61st Berlin International Film Festival.
Propelled by an acute attention to class, religious and gender differences, Ashgar Farhadi‘s meticulous script questions the very basis of truth and ethics, and explores the cultural, social and judicial minefield that plagues contemporary Iran. At its heart a gripping, humane drama that recalls classic Hitchcock in its twists and turns, A Separation puts director Asghar Farhadi at the front rank of contemporary world directors.
