This Oscar-winning film from director Asghar Farhadi tells the story of Rana and Emad; a married couple who are rehearsing for a performance of Arthur Miller’s 'Death of a Salesman'. Forced to leave their collapsing house, they rent an apartment from a fellow performer, unaware of the property’s history. One night, an incident linked to the previous tenant occurs that threatens to forever change their lives. Concerned with the clash of modern culture and traditional conservative that defines Iranian society, Frahadi has crafted another psychological and moral drama that transcends borders to get to the heart of humanity. Specially commissioned programme notes are available here.

Flawless performances, meticulous construction, elegant visuals
