I've just returned from watching Mr. Maadi's directorial debut. The movie's plot revolves around a woman who discovers her husband has been cheating on her. As she delves into this affair, she starts to become more and more detached from her spouse and starts to re-examine the life she has been leading all these years.
The movie is decently executed and well-made. The performances are believable, especially that of Saber Abar. But what struck me most was the ripple effect that Asghar Farhady's "A Separation" has had on Iranian cinema. This newly-emerging realist social drama is spreading like wild fire, and I believe that it will continue to do so in the future. I know this because of the audience's reaction to the film at the closing credits (In Iran, it is customary for audiences to applaud at the end of a film which they believe to have been good).
I recommend this film to most Iranians, as well as those non-Iranians who wish to know more about Iran (Beyond what they see on Fox News).
