The Salesman

Having  been  out of the country for 3 months, I was unaware of this film. I did not know it got high awards. Te movie shot in Tehran is about a couple who lose their apt to damage and they hastily move very quickly to a new one.. There arises very rapidly some kind of isssue with the previous tenant.

In this small apartment. we never see what happened, but there is a serious question of what happended to the wife when she was taking her shower. Did the former tenant come into the apt and see her naked.? Did he hit her? Was there physical contact? What did happen? The wife won’t talk about it. Muslim values are strong here in that the victim feels shame and shares blame.

Tension mounts and dialog gets very pointed. Ethics, morality, revenge and the truth all converge into a tightly wound drama. Its a good film.
