Jodaeiye Nader az Simin (2011)
Best Film of the Year (Not just Best Foreign Film)
Simply the best film I've ever seen, on a par with "The Lives of Others".
What is astonishing about the film is that it is the first time in 40 years of watching Iranian films that I have witnessed "under-acting". Every character, from the lead male protagonist to the man with Alzheimer's, was so incredibly realistic that I had the impression none of them knew they were being filmed.
The Iranian regime is furious with the film's success simply because the film portrays the real, daily lives of ordinary Iranians struggling to make ends meet while the Fat Cats enjoy their ill-gotten gains abroad.
It deserves "Best Film of the Year" and not just "Best Foreign Film".
