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.

"July 7 "What is wrong is wrong, no matter who said it or where it's written." This was a fantastic movie. It had some amazing writing and the realism of this movie is amazing. It didn't feel like I was watching a movie at all. It felt like I was watching something that really happened which shows how realistic this movie is. If you're planning on seeing this movie then go into this one blind because that's how I watched this film. "

A very good movie

“Back then, when it was released, it was a huge critical success and many called it the best movie of the year so, with this in mind, I was really eager to check it out. To be honest, I thought the whole thing was at first misleading. Indeed, I thought the movie was above all about this couple who were divorcing and I thought, somehow, that the movie would deal above all with the woman because she was the one who wanted this separation. In fact, the separation wasn’t the most dramatic event that took place, but an accident involving a pregnant woman who worked for the husband who might have been responsible for her miscarriage. In fact, this turn of event was actually quite compelling to watch and it was quite a masterstroke from the director that even though I, and many viewers I guess, ” read more

" Note : This movie was quite compelling to watch and it was quite a masterstroke from the director that even though I, and many viewers I guess, have very little knowledge of the Iranian culture and, still, I could really identify with most of the characters and I was able to understand most of the struggles they were facing. And that’s the other amazing thing about this flick is that you don’t only identify with the main character, you are able to understand all the other characters involv"

"05/22/14 Directed by: Asghar Farhadi On a technical level everything was adequate. It looked alright, sounded alright. The story was pretty well put together for the most part but its not something I really connect with on any level. So the film ends up sitting in this grey area of being "just fine". I did really like the last scene, even if the actual "separation" felt like it didn't carry all that much weight in the film. I've also never really been a fan of these kind-of "hyper-realistic" f"

"The story about Nader and Simin was very interesting to watch. I've also wished to have seen more scenes with Simin, because she is so beautiful, but there were more scenes with Nader in it, but that's okay. It was very exciting how the story worked out. "

"14.1. DVD Otteessaan pitävää moraalipyöritystä ihmisjoukon välisestä kiistasta, jonka aiheuttaa raskaana olevan naisen keskenmeno. Kenenkään puolelle on vaikea asettua, mutta jokaisen osapuolen ratkaisuja ymmärtää jollain tasolla. Saa myös pohtimaan mm. oikeusjärjestelmiä ja niiden suhdetta yksilöön ja totuuteen."
