A Separation @ Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI)


Nader and Simin, a married couple in contemporary Tehran, are at a seemingly intractable impasse. Simin (the incandescent Leila Hatami) is anxious to leave Iran to ensure better prospects for their twelve-year-old daughter, Termeh (played by Sarina Farhadi, director Asghar Farhadi's talented daughter) but Nader (Payman Maadi) is reluctant to leave his ailing father behind. Asghar Farhadi's impressively acted and acutely observed drama won the Golden Bear for Best Film at the 2011 Berlin Film Festival on a trajectory that ultimately saw the film become the first Iranian film to win an Academy Award®, for Best Foreign Language Film. "...a compelling portrait of the divisions afflicting everyday life in Iran, to do with men and women, class and religion.and the complexities of human behaviour. Magnificent" - The Sunday Age "Flawless, elegant, mysterious.a world-class masterpiece" - The Wall Street Journal
