  • Unfortunately I don’t remember the story of the Arthur Miller play.
  • A rather harrowing draggy film
  • Enjoyed watching this

  • Rubbish ending
  • Very good but heavy viewing
  • Very gripping slow moving drama.  Kept me on the edge of my seat throughout
  • Excellent
  • Definitely a trade-mark ending from this director.  But then, that real life, isn’t it?
  • Very enjoyable
  • Excellent film – very thought provoking concerting th themes of guilt and revenge.  BTZW we also have Farhadi’s The Past in 2009 and that was a great film too
  • A powerful portrayal of showing the futility of revenge.  Another hard hitting piece of cinema by Ashgar Farhadi.  Excellent script,s direction , photography and acting
