MUN Cinema Series: The Salesman
Thursday, March 23, 7-9 p.m.
Cineplex Theatre, Avalon Mall
The Salesman (Iran, France 2016) 125 min. Directed by Asghar Farhadi With Taraneh Alidoosti, Shahab Hosseini, Babak Karimi, Farid Sajjadi Hosseini et al. Persian with English subtitles. The brilliant Iranian director of A SEPARATION returns to his study of contemporary disruption. A middle-class couple in Tehran, Rana and Emad, seem to be living the dream, settled and comfortable, starring in an adaptation of Arthur Miller’s “Death of a Salesman.” But just when you thought it was safe to say Loman, they must evacuate their danger-prone apartment. The relocation, at first smoothly managed, fatefully leads to a violent encounter, one for which Emad seeks revenge. What begins as an emotionally stable couple practicing their craft takes a turn on a much more unpredictable path, one from which nothing good can come.
