Darbareye Elly

Asghar Farhadi Iran, 2009

Zac Weber's rating of the film About Elly

Another excellent film from Asghar Farhadi featuring taut dialogue and a rich 35mm canvas. The acting is superb, and Farhadi must be commended for his subtle ability to capture the nuances of modern Iran. I was mildly disappointed in the ending as I would have preferred more ambiguity in light of the mystery surrounding earlier parts of the film.
