A great movie from Iran about a couple with a eleven year old daughter make plans to divorce,hopful that things will get better, but from there, the situation got worse as the film moves on. The movie is directed by Asgnar Farhadi who wrote the screenplay which is nominated for an Academy Award for best screenplay, protrayed the family with real problems. In other words the family in this movie is no different from the families in America. The film also depicted Muslims in a more realistic way. There are three reasons why you don't want to see the movie, 1) It's from Iran, why should you go to see a movie from a country that currently has a conflict with America over their nuclear program? 2) no big name stars. 3) It's a foreign language movie. All three reasons are hogwash. You should see this movie and I tell you why, it's better to see the lives of people in another country and to understand the culture of how they live. This is a very important movie and I urge you all to se this movie. You will walk away from this movie with a better understanding of the country and the people. It's an important movie and you should see it.
