A Separation Trailer, Jodaeiye Nader az Simin Trailer. Asghar Farhadi‘s A Separation / Jodaeiye Nader az Simin (2011) movie trailer stars Peyman Moaadi, Leila Hatami, Sareh Bayat, Shahab Hosseini, and Babak Karimi. A Separation / Jodaeiye Nader az Simin‘s plot synopsis: “Nader (Peyman Moaadi)and Simin (Leila Hatami) argue about living abroad. Simin prefers to live abroad to provide better opportunities for their only daughter, Termeh. However, Nader refuses to go because he thinks he must stay in Iran and take care of his father (Ali-Asghar Shahbazi), who suffers from Alzheimers. However, Simin is determined to get a divorce and leave the country with her daughter.”
This looks good. Many of of the key moments are kept in shadow, off screen. The father is between a rock and a hard place. How does pushing someone out the door result in them dying?

Asghar Farhadi’s “Nader and Simin” was the big winner at this year’s Berlin Film Festival, which announced its awards Saturday evening, a day prior to the end of the fest.
