"What am I supposed to do?" (Emad is desperate to understand why his wife Rana just wants him to move on).
Here's another thought provoking cinematic contribution from bold Iranian film-maker, Asghan Farhadi. With not quite the power of A Separation it is however just as tautly made. Emad (Shahab Hosseini) is a teacher of substance who is emotionally tested as a husband when a series of events lead to an incident that compromises, in his eyes, his masculinity. Emad's wife Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti) is central to the emotional discourse they must resolve. At the same time they spend their leisure time playing husband and wife in an amateur performance of Death of a Salesman. This is a quality, emotive and most of all a thoughtful film. 10GUMS.
