The Salesman

Cinema

Directed by Asghar Farhadi | 2016 | Iran | Persian with English subtitles | Starring Shahab Hosseini, Taraneh Alidoosti | 125mins

Iranian auteur Asghar Farhadi’s drama won the best foreign language film award at this year’s Oscars.

As with Farhadi's last two films, the acclaimed A Separation (2011) and The Past (2013), the director examines the strained relationship between a middle-class married couple, Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti, a long-time collaborator with Farhadi) and Emad (Shahab Hosseini). Emad is a teacher and Rana his stay-at-home wife. In their spare time, they're also part of a theatre group, working on a production of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman in which they play Miller's careworn Willy Loman and his wife, Linda. Preparations for the play are going well until Rana and Emad suffer a disturbing domestic incident; which triggers emotional fault lines across their marriage.

Exploring challenging questions of morality and retribution, The Salesman is beautifully observed and painstakingly crafted.
