A Separation Reviews
I barely watch non-English movie, this one "A Separation" is an Iranian film which I kept it on my harddisk over a year without watching. I want to clear disk space so I picked up this one and watch at very late night which I supposed to fell asleep but I didn't because this movie is so brilliant. I would say it's drama mystery investigation mixed with very wise writing, direct and very good acting.
This deserved the Oscar Best Foreign Language Film winner on 2012.
A Separation condenses the modern understanding of drama with its talented exhibition of directing, writing and camerawork, all to tell in the most compelling way possible a pretty much classical tale of ambiguity and morality that never ceases to captivate.
Thanks to Asghar Farhadi, a legendary filmmaker.
At first it was kind of a dull movie with a bit of a slow pace, but it turned out to be much more than that. Lots of emotion shown here, all the actors in this gave a top notch performance. The ending was even satisfying as it left you purposefully wondering what the result of what side the daughter chose(my money is on the father). Good movie.
