The Salesman (Iran) : A Film by Asghar Farhadi
The future looks promising for amateur actors Emad and Rana as they prepare for the opening night of their production of Arthur Millers ‘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. Academy-Award winning filmmaker Asghar Farhadi (‘A Separation’) returns with ‘The Salesman’, a characteristically taught drama exploring how unexpected cracks can form in the foundations of a seemingly happy marriage.
