The Past

Dir. Asghar Farhadi France/italy 130 min PG-13

2013 Sony Pictures Classics

American audiences were introduced to one of the world’s great new directors when A SEPARATION was honored as the Best Foreign Language Film at the 2012 Academy Awards. Now, the director is back with another film that explores family roles in a rapidly developing world.

Following a four year separation, Ahmad (Ali Mosaffa) returns to Paris from Tehran, upon his estranged French wife Marie (Bérénice Bejo)’s request, in order to finalize their divorce procedure so she can marry her new boyfriend Samir (Tahar Rahim). During his tense, brief stay, Ahmad discovers the conflicted nature of Marie’s relationship with her teenage daughter Lucie (Pauline Burlet). Ahmad’s efforts to improve this relationship soon unveil a secret from their past.
