  2. auloel's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Beautiful ending. How brittle an institute called marriage was.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Avec un remarquable sens aigu de l'image qui touche, marque, révèle, le metteur en scène nous livre une oeuvre étonnante de vivacité et de pétulance existentielles, avec toujours en filigrane, une critique pertinente et fondée de la société iranienne... www.cinefiches.com

  4. goulton green's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    So many fine moments done in beautiful cinematography, colours and sound. Farhadi comments the absurdity wasteland of human relationships by prolonged scenes voided of acting, filled with incidental sounds and monotony. A scene to offer: Simin's determination to leave diminished with a firecracker exploding under her feet. End feeling: at a quite consent all delusions are to be continued. Masterpiece.

  6. Hayat's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    So tense. Fantastic quality as usual from Farhadi and everyone basically.

  7. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Thoroughly absorbing, “Fireworks Wednesday” is anchored in the truthfulness of many men-women relationships. It's a powerful storytelling put up with brilliancy. (4.5 stars)

  8. andrew's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Not quite enough fireworks. Gentle and intereting, with warm characters

  9. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

  10. chazell's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    missed the end of this because it was cut off at midnight, broken tiny heart, it was going great

  11. Ben Dooley's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    A subtle melodramatic love triangle between an upper-middle-class couple and the hairdresser in their apartment block. It has some contrived drama, centred on gaslighting, but also has a playful performance from Alidosti as the working class maid, soon to be married, who sees (and smells) it all, and whose chador becomes part of the intrigue. A carefully framed narrative, full of interesting details of Iranian life.

  12. janh24's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    A very sophisticated melodrama.

  13. Steve G.'s rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Gripping domestic drama that also gives a vibrant and absorbing taste of the chaotic nature of Iranian life in a big city. Beautifully shot and impeccably acted, it's also a razor sharp commentary on marriage. Stunning.

  14. m.jempson@btinternet.com's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Superb movie. Extraordinary acting, amazing faces. Touching, painful observation of relationships, but what do we ever learn. Let's hope Roohi's marriage works out. Someone, somewhere MUST be happy.

  15. Superfrog's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Very well made with very strong performances. A poignant film with a very theatrical setting, both in the acting and in the themes.The subtlety in the story and in the characters is an opportunity to enjoy in a genre where obvious is the norm.

  16. raggiodisole's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Superb drama of betrayal, suspicion complicitness, hope, aftermath. Marriage from the opposite ends of the spectrum, brilliantly played out.

  17. SiIencio's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Resting on two major pillars, superb acting across the board and Farhadi's empathetic eye for unearthing human sensitivities, the energetic Fireworks Wednesday has the ability to show us once more how simple mundane stories can be elevated to beautiful works of art with wisdom and talent. Iranian cinema is a major film-making powerhouse thanks to elegant works like this.

  18. P Teddy Sawyer's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    A beautiful exploration of the hear-stopping complexity of lives that are 'mundane' and simple. .....A Superb and totally engaging cast of actors and a skilfully dramatic denouement that plays games with our hollywood conditioned expectaions.

  19. Howard Orr's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    [Spoilers] Superbly acted and directed, it's a stringent take on the lies and suspicions that riddle everyday lives; its final impression, reminiscent of Kieslowski's darkest moments, moves us far from the innocent young woman who seemed to be the film's focus. Farhadi has the masterful eye of a great painter, who places readily identifiable psychology centre stage, and the wary glances on the edge of a canvas.

  20. Squashua's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Like literary governesses of the past, a story that highlights the dangers and perils of stumbling into the tensions simmering away in the private lives of others. Really appreciated Farhadi's deft touch with relationships, despite a slightly formulaic plot, and offering up a large percentage of the screen time to complex female characters. The impending fireworks night setting was the perfect pathetic fallacy too.

  21. fanfan's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Really loved the Separation and this one is good too. The conflicts, lies, and the unresolved emotions, is restless, & powerful.

  22. Khashayar Mohammadi's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Hedye Tehrani's performance is Phenomenal.

  23. Olenka Kontrabandista's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Asghar Farhadi on his examination of marriage and the fine line between truth and lie. A great movie!

  24. Zeppo's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    One of the best endings I've ever come across.
