REVIEW: The Salesman“Written, directed and produced by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Asghar Farhadi, this riveting tale of love, revenge, and forgiveness stars Taraneh Alidoosti and Shahab Hosseini as a young married couple living in Tehran whose lives and relationship are forever altered by an unexpected act of violence... After their old apartment becomes damaged, Emad (Shahab Hosseini) and Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti), a young couple living in Tehran, are forced to move into a new apartment. However, once relocated, a sudden eruption of violence linked to the previous tenant of the new home dramatically changes the couple’s life, creating a simmering tension between husband and wife.” That is the official description for The Salesman, now available on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, which has provided NewTechReview with a NFR copy for review.

Of course, there’s also the fact that many American viewers don’t want to give foreign films a chance because they are not familiar with the culture and language, and they have to deal with reading subtitles, which can sometimes take away from the enjoyment of a film. Even so, filmmaker Asghar Aarhadi has been flourishing with his directorial skills in features like The Past, A Separation, and now The Salesman...
