  1. Nick Potter's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Even with this (arguably) being in the lower tier of Asghar Farhadi films, his masterful and truly human storytelling is something to behold and admire in every situation.

  2. Sean Han Tani's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    A firecracker explodes at the hairdresser's feet. In shock, she looks back at the alley where she has just broken off her affair. The man and his car are gone, but there is an older woman trudging with a walker. It made me think, there really is so much we need to do in our relationships relating to communication so that we don't carry anything that may haunt us or others, later, at an older age...

  3. Adam GR's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Iran shows up beautifully on film. Asghar Farhadi's deft vantage creates a prismatically mundane story with characters already spinning in the motion of their lives. Not as entirely revelatory as About Elly, but very strong work, particularly from Hedyeh Tehrani and Pantea Bahram. The elevator shot captures you in disorientation.

  5. Hodek Van Mealstrom's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Drama at its finest. The last minutes feels like you are watching Dekalog XI. Sublime piece.

  6. Kelsey Ramirez's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    I could not help by being so captivated. There was something that was so twisted yet stern when it came to marriage. A strong message, the grass isn't always greener on the other side was clearly stated. Build of the characters brought such a rhythm and sorrow to me. It opens the eyes of how much people don't appreciate what they have and don't realize how there actions effect others.

  8. auloel's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    Beautiful ending. How brittle an institute called marriage was.

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  12. Hayat's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

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

  13. 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)

  14. andrew's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

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

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

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  18. janh24's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

    A very sophisticated melodrama.

  19. 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.

  20. Mike Jempson'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.

  21. 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.

  22. 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.

  23. 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 simply talent and wisdom. Iranian cinema is a major film-making powerhouse thanks to elegant works like this.

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

    A beautiful exploration of the heart-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 expectations.
