"A Separation" provides a useful portrait of Iran today. Some inflamed American political rhetoric has portrayed it as a rogue nation eager to start nuclear war. All too many Americans, I fear, picture Iranians as camel-riding harem-keepers. Certainly some of Iran's punishments for adultery that we read about seem medieval. But this film portrays a more nuanced nation, and its decent characters are trying to do the right thing. To untangle right and wrong in this fascinating story is a moral challenge. I'd love to see the film with wise judges from American divorce courts and hear their decisions. Sometimes the law is not adequate to deal with human feelings.

I wasn't expecting this to be that good, very subtle drama. Well worth the watch.

It might be a realistic family drama, but I didn’t find it entertaining or interesting at all. I don’t get why this has such a high rating, because I really struggled to get through this. Showing everyday misery doesn’t automatically make a plot worthwhile…

His movies start with such a simple premise but soon the situations force the characters to break their usual amiable demeanour and human emotions prevail in their true f More

No es otra tonta película sobre árabes locos, fanáticos religiosos y potenciales terroristas… por lo menos no todos son árabes locos, fanáticos religiosos y potenciales terroristas.

Trata de una familia más o menos acomodada en donde con una pareja trabajadora, una hija que va a la escuel More

Great movie around and simple yet neat story with great characters, script and performances.

You can totally believe the story is just happening at your building stairs.
