Asghar Farhadi Iran, 2011

OFF_FRAME's rating of the film A Separation

Just brilliant. Possibly the most mesmerizing domestic drama I've seen, Meditations on truth, righteousness, ego, law, honour and faith all wound up in multi-layered and complex storytelling that never feels forced or contrived. Brilliant, subtle and refrained performances from everyone involved. 5 stars
