After their old flat becomes damaged, Emad (Shahab Hosseini) and Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti), a young couple living in Tehran, are forced to move into a new apartment. Eventually, an incident linked to the previous tenant of their new home dramatically changes the couple’s life.
“Revealing neorealistic drama about the human condition in modern Tehran.” - Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
“Creating tension that ratchets up in sly increments, Farhadi steers his narrative to a shattering conclusion about the quality of mercy and vengeance. - Brian D. Johnson, Maclean's Magazine
“(Actors) Hosseini and Alidoosti find the truth of every scene.” - Norman Wilner, NOW Toronto
