A Separation @ Queensland Art Gallery - Gallery of Modern Art


If we look at life with a realistic view, it is exactly those little, minute, ordinary things that change our destinies. We have this misconception that we think it's the bigger events in our lives that change our paths. And we always think about the big events, and it takes a lot of time for us to decipher them. For instance, decisions like marriage. But we don't really think about the small things because we think they have no influence. All the while, they're what change our lives. It's a tragedy that we don't pay attention to them.' Asghar Farhadi 'Simin and Nader are at an impasse. She wants to leave Iran to find a better life for their daughter in Europe, while he wants to stay longer to look after his ailing father, who is dying of Alzheimer's. Reluctantly they separate, unwittingly setting off a chain of events that draw them into a murky legal battle – a situation that offers no easy answers, and in which no one seems entirely free from blame. Deftly written and grippingly paced, this nuanced drama peels back the layers of Iranian society with unerring precision and grace.' Brisbane Asia Pacific Film Festival
