The Salesman is a well-crafted, valuable drama.

Guardian

March’s Spotlight film heralds the return of Oscar winning director Asghar Farhadi (A Separation) with another Oscar winner, The Salesman, a taut drama exploring how unexpected cracks can form in the foundations of a seemingly happy marriage.

The future looks promising for amateur actors Emad (Shahab Hosseini) and Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti) as they prepare for opening night on their production of Arthur Miller’s ‘Death of a Salesman’. However, when dangerous work on a neighbouring building forces the couple to leave their home and move into a new apartment, a case of mistaken identity sees a shocking and violent incident throw their lives into turmoil. What follows is a series of wrong turns that threaten to destroy their relationship irreparably.

The winner of the Best Foreign Language Film at this year’s Oscars and the winner of the Best Screenplay and Best Actor awards at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, Farhadi’s study on the potent power of pride, guilt and shame treads the line between arresting drama and revenge thriller with masterful ease.
