A Separation

The avalanche of moral, ethical, legal and emotional dilemmas that emerges during A Separation is the best late Christmas gift for any lover of great drama. This is an overwhelming, stupefyingly well-crafted motion picture that succeeds as magnificently well as it does thanks to its layered thematic complexity, its raw realism and the top-shelf work from the best ensemble cast in a 2011 film.

Nader and Simin are a couple married for 14 years. But there is a problem. Simin insists on moving abroad but Nader cannot as his father has Alzheimer's syndrome. Thus Simin decides to separate from him and take her 11 year old daughter with her. Nader refuses the divorce and plainly ignores the problem as he knew she would never leave. But then one thing leads to another and gap begins to widen. ... read more

Elokuvapäiväkirja (199 movies items)

"4.11.2017 Ero on kamaridraaman mestariteos, joka on ennen kaikkea käsikirjoitettu ja näytelty loistavasti, kuin seuraisi hieman trillerimäiseksi kirjoitettua Bergmania Iranissa. Jokainen kohtaus tuo elokuvan yhteiskunnallisuuteen ja dramaturgiaan uuden sävyn. Päähenkilöt ovat elokuvan lopussa aivan eri ihmisiä kuin alussa myös katsojan mielestä, eivät vain keinotekoisen draaman vuoksi. Se, mikä alkaa perheenjäsenten välienselvittelynä, kasvaa rajojensa ulkopuolelle yhteiskunnan k"

ALL-TIME 100 Revisited (20 movies items)

"When the Motion Picture Academy this year gave its Best Foreign-Language Film prize to A Separation — the first Iranian feature to win an Oscar — skeptics might have seen the award as a political statement. At a time when Iran was under rhetorical fire from the Israeli government and Republican presidential candidates, the liberal Academy members were offering an Oscar as an olive branch. What’s more likely is that the voters were endorsing the complexities of Asghar Farhadi’s fascinatin"
