A Separation ★★★★★

I loved the rawness of the drama and how in many ways it’s underplayed, not going down the road that western films might. Farhadi lets the story unfold without the bangs and whistles of trying to make it visually stunning as he understands that if we are aware of the camera’s presence you lose the connection with what is going on screen. The documentary style and the way the story is played gives you the impression that you are more of a witness than an audience.
Full of real characters with real problems. A beautiful BEAUTIFUL film.
