After their Tehran flat becomes damaged, Emad (Hosseini) and Rana (Alidoosti) must move into another apartment; a place with unsettling reminders of its previous tenant – and a sudden, violent incident soon erupts.

As the couple continue to rehearse for an amateur production of Death of a Salesman, Emad’s determination to investigate the incident creates a widening gulf between them.

The Salesman earned Farhadi his second Best Foreign Language Oscar and, as in his previous winner A Separation, he expertly creates rounded characters whose domestic dramas are framed within wider Iranian society.


Here is a link to a Review in The Guardian.  Further links will be added for those who want a deeper insight into the events underpinning this film.

The Guardian review includes a link to a trailer.  The US Trailer (ironic that, given that Farhadi was prevented from traveling to the US to collect his award) can be seen below –
