Saw Iranian Film at AFI in Silver Spring

Saw “The Salesman”, written and directed by Asghar Farhadi, a well-know Iranian director working inside Iran. 

My impression was that the movie took way too long to get to the point. The last half-hour was engrossing as the movie worked it’s way to the  climax. I suppose the theme was revenge vs. forgiveness, the husband taking the side of revenge, the wife forgiveness.

Farhadi also made acclaimed The Separation, which I did’t like so much, and About Elly, which I did.
