The Salesman

The Salesman

The Salesman (M)
2 Hour 10 minutes

Academy Award winner: Best Foreign Language film.

The Salesman (Forushande) is the superb new film from Academy Award winner Asghar Farhadi (A Separation, About Elly). It is a masterfully tense and emotionally complex examination of anger, fear, guilt and revenge. Through stunning performances and a near devastating screenplay, The Salesman is an unflinching examination of a marriage pushed to its limits and the frailties of Iranian society and gender politics.

When their Tehran flat is damaged in the dramatic opening scenes of the film, Emad and Rana, a young married couple, are forced to move into another flat, loaned by a friend, not realising the previous tenant was a prostitute.

Thinking it is Emad, Rana lets a stranger into the house while she is washing her hair. The assault that follows opens a rift between the couple as Rana seeks solitude and Emad seeks revenge.

Set against a production of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman in which Emad and Rana appear as Willy and Linda Loman, The Salesman is work of immense emotional complexity that stands proudly among Farhadi’s best films.

Alone in Berlin

Alone in Berlin

Alone in Berlin (M)
1 Hour 48 minutes

Emma Thompson, Brendan Gleeson. True story based on the novel. Berlin, 1940. Working class couple Otto and Anna Quangel receive the news that their only son has lost his life in the battlefield and decide to resist the Nazi regime in their very own way. Soon the Gestapo is hunting "the threat".

How did an ordinary, middle-aged couple become a symbol of defiance against Nazi brutality? This true-life tale of courage unfolds against the tumultuous backdrop of Berlin in 1940. Otto and Anna Quangel (Brendan Gleeson & Emma Thompson) are a working class husband and wife doing their best to ride out the war. When their son is killed fighting on the frontlines, however, everything changes. They begin pouring their rage and grief into postcards emblazoned with anti-Nazi slogans, risking everything to disseminate their messages of protest across the city. But this seemingly small act of subversion rattles the regime, including a police inspector (Daniel Brühl) who will not rest until the culprits have been caught. Based on the bestselling novel Every Man Dies Alone by Hans Fallada, Alone in Berlin is both a gripping thriller and a stirring ode to resistance.
