If it had been for President Trump's travel ban, I wouldn't see this movie Director Asghar Farhadi had cancel his trip to America to take part in the Academy Awards because of the Travel Ban, which since has been declared unconstitutional by the courts. He coud've have attended but choose not to. The film won best Foreign film, but it's sad that he wasn't there to receive his much deserve award. I see Farhadi as Iran's answer to Igmar Bergman. Lots of emotions that came out of "the Salesman" comes from Bergman. The film tells of an iranian couple who took part in a play "Death of a Salesman." A Iranian version of the American play by Arthor Miller. But when the previous tenant assault's the man wife, The who thing began to change for them, which includes their effort into the play. I won't reveal the end, but that ending reminds me of the motto "Two Wrongs don't make a Right." There aren't any name worthy people in the movie And it's in Iranian with subtitles. but don't let that get to you. If you haven't seen an Foreign, you need to see this to get a look of the culture of another country. If you expecting any ant-American symbols, you won't see any. In additional to "Death of a Salesman," Iran is embracing American culture. One scene has a child looking forward to watching Spoungbob Squarepants. I was shock when i learn that Iran love that cartoon show. also noted that their neighborhood had lots of cats. You going to learn a lot about Iran as you see this movie. If it's playing in your neighborhood, you need to see it now.
