Darbareye Elly

Asghar Farhadi Iran, 2009

comeandsee's rating of the film About Elly

The first of Farhadi's masterpieces. Takes the framework of L'Avventura and injects such emotional chaos, such dramatic tension that is not released until the end of the movie. As with all his films the acting is superb, the visuals catch moments which could otherwise be swept away with the story. I feel this director is the leader in creating compressed, emotional chaotic dramas in modern cinema.
