Tense and narratively complex, formally dense and morally challenging, Asghar Farhadi’s impressive drama is his strongest work yet. The provocative plot casts a revealing light on Iranian society, taking on issues of gender, class, justice and honor as a secular middle-class family in the midst of upheaval winds up in conflict with an impoverished religious one. As rich formally as it is in terms of story, the film plays throughout with what is heard and not seen, making the central visual motif of open and closed doors integral to the plot; the edgy lensing of Mahmood Kalari, uses choreography and framing to telegraph relationships and feelings.
