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.

A Separation

“From the opening minutes of A Separation we are thrown into the deep end of the film’s emotionally bruising and complicated morass. The simplest of domestic squabbles can so easily spin out into messy situations that grow exponentially and drag in surrounding players. What starts as a simple impasse between a married couple soon involves a lower-class family and a thorny legal battle.   But how do we get there? That’s the pleasure and engaging emotional tournament that A Separation pulls us through. It is a masterpiece of taking the old adage of the “frog in the slowly boiling pot” and applies it to the narrative and character journeys.   Simin (Leila Hatami) and Nader (Peyman Moaadi) are a married couple at a roadblock in their relationship.
