An Excellent Film By Asghar Farhadi,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fireworks Wednesday [DVD] (DVD)
I have purchased this film after I have seen A Separation, and About Elly and I must say this film is on par with those great films. Farhadi is like a surgeon whose cinema anatomies the complexities underlying Iran's contemporary society and here through the strained relationship between a wife and her husband on the eve of the Persian New Year.
What I especially like about Asghar Farhadi's films is the powerful well-written script which reveals the facts and truths gradually in a way that challenges our assumptions about the events unfolding in front of our eyes. The acting is superb and the music is sublime.
This is a gripping drama about love, betrayal, lack of trust. domestic violence, and the emotional and physiological aches that weigh heavy on our hears and souls.
By the way, I saw The Past (Farhadi's latest film) and I even liked Fireworks Wednesday better :)
