Iranian actresses are not allowed to appear without hijabs. And Iranian women don't wear hijab in their home. Farhadi always find a way to solve this problem like there is always a stranger in the house but in the scene Rana is cleaning the house she is all alone and still wearing a hijab. See more »
Asghar Farhadi is an amazing director. His 4 films are nominated for Oscar in a row. Amonth them, "A Separation" won the first Oscar and Golden globe to an Iranian movie. His direction style and making always impress me.
"The Salesman" is the story of a couple who move to a new apartment, unaware that it was occupied by a prostitute before them. A customer of the old tenant makes a visit to the apartment that makes the couples life upside down.
The husband is searching for the visitor for a revenge, but ends up in a sweet revenge story, or so called.
I was so impressed by the movie that I have no words to explain or describe it. Asghar Farhadi's free and candid type of visuals makes the movie more lively. Close ups make the drama more intense.
The movie is such an emotional drama that you don't want to miss.
A must watch. Highly recommended.
