While both participating in a production of "Death of a Salesman," a teacher's wife is assaulted in her new home, which leaves him determined to find the perpetrator over his wife's traumatized objections.
Forced to leave their collapsing house, Ranaa and Emad, an Iranian couple who happen to be performers rehearsing for Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman" rent a new apartment from one of their fellow performers. Unaware of the fact that the previous tenant had been a woman of ill repute having many clients, they settle down. By a nasty turn of events one of the clients pays a visit to the apartment one night while Ranaa is alone at home taking a bath and the aftermath turns the peaceful life of the couple upside down.Written by
The movie broke the opening weekend box office record in Iran. See more »
The old man was in rush to leave, so he forgot his car keys and couldn't take the car at that moment. But some days later, he comes and takes the car which means he had a duplicate key. The question is why he didn't come back for the car during the midnight. Emad found the car the next day morning or noon. See more »
Asghar Farhadi is an amazing director. His 4 films are nominated for Oscar in a row. Amonth them, "A Separation" won the first Oscar and Golden globe to an Iranian movie. His direction style and making always impress me.
"The Salesman" is the story of a couple who move to a new apartment, unaware that it was occupied by a prostitute before them. A customer of the old tenant makes a visit to the apartment that makes the couples life upside down.
The husband is searching for the visitor for a revenge, but ends up in a sweet revenge story, or so called.
I was so impressed by the movie that I have no words to explain or describe it. Asghar Farhadi's free and candid type of visuals makes the movie more lively. Close ups make the drama more intense.
The movie is such an emotional drama that you don't want to miss.
A must watch. Highly recommended.
