A Separation

A Separation Poster

An Iranian movie whereby a wife wanted the family to leave the country so as to give their daughter a brighter future.  But the husband refused, his reason being that he had to look after his aging father who has Alzheimer’s disease.

The wife decided to separate from the husband, thinking that he will either go with her or ask her home.  He never did and it broke her heart.

A simple plot but very engaging every step of the way.  It even ends open ended with the daughter torn and in tears in the divorce court room.

Image and sound grade may not be as good as hollywood’s.  But storyline and style is just as good, if not, better.
