...Asghar Farhadi’s Oscar could take Iranian cinema to the global market
I saw A Separation recently. It's a damn good drama. The actors slip into their roles with remarkable ease. The thing about cinema is its ability to focus on events on the ground. A Separation shows us a side of Iran that is accessible, understandable and relatable. This is not the Iran of nuclear brinkmanship but one where common people struggle to carry on with their lives and make the best of what's on offer.
