Movie propaganda

The winner of the 2011 Sydney Film Prize at the recent Sydney Film Festival, A SEPARATION is a compelling and profound film that focuses on a contemporary Iranian middle-class couple who separate, and the intrigues which follow when the husband hires a lower-class caretaker for his elderly father. The film received the Golden Bear for Best Film and the Silver Bears for Best Actress and Best Actor at the 61st Berlin International Film Festival, becoming the first Iranian film to do so. Nader and Simin have been married for fourteen years and live with their eleven-year-old daughter Termeh in Tehran. The family belongs to the urban upper middle-class and the couple are on the verge of separation. Simin wants to leave the country with her husband and daughter, as she does not want Termeh to grow up under the prevailing conditions. Her desire is not shared by the stubborn Nader. He has concerns for his father, who lives with the family and suffers from Alzheimer's disease. When Nader firmly decides to stay in Iran, Simin files for a divorce... A gripping moral and social drama that also recalls classic Hitchcock in its twists and turns, A SEPARATION puts director Asghar Farhadi at the front rank of contemporary world directors.
