Film Night | The Salesman
presented by the Port Moody Film Society
In 2017 Iranian director Asghar Farhadi won his second Oscar (Best Foreign Language film) for this compelling thriller. Ranaa and Emad are a married couple, both actors rehearsing for a performance of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman. When they are forced to move out of their collapsing apartment building, they become embroiled in a dangerous situation in their new home, involving the previous occupant. With exquisite patience and attention to detail, Farhadi builds a solid and suspenseful plot out of ordinary incidents, and packs it with rich and resonant ideas. The Salesman is about trust and honor, about violence against women in a patriarchal society, about the woe that is in marriage, but it is also about death, a salesman and the hidden brutality of class.
Drama/Thriller | Iran | Rated PG13 | 124 minutes
