Like Asghar Farhadi's acclaimed recent movies, this is a story about middle-class Tehran and the layers of conflict that evolve out of seemingly ordinary circumstances.

The smog that envelopes the teeming metropolis of Tehran, graying out tall buildings and infecting people's lungs, becomes an ominous sign of the times in veteran director Behnam Behzadi's penetrating drama Inversion.

The audience looks at Niloofar and feels so connected to her eager vitality that we want her to be everything that she can be. But she's living in a society where that desire must take a back just about everything else.

Sahar Dowlatshahi, an actor who can emote with just gaze and eyebrows, beautifully complements [writer-director Behnam Behzad's] nuanced approach.

Inversion feels like a neo-realist movie. The settings appear tangible and authentic. The actors disappear into their characters. There is no soundtrack, just the noise of radios and ringtones.

The elements of drama are strong, and give the film's closely observed scenes -- even when a touch of melodrama slips in, Inversion is still very much a work of realism -- their power.
