Nadin's rating of the film A Separation

Intense and gripping - the Golden Bear is well deserved.There's more to the film than a simple separation. The layer of modern vs traditional Iran is subtle and yet extremely powerful. It's not even so much about the parents. It's an astonishing account of the degree of suffering of children and their devotion to the people they look up to, their faith, their love. Very thought-provoking, five stars!
