Rated NR · 104 minutes · 2006

Released in this country as a late-arriving follow-up to Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi’s A Separation and The Past, this slightly shaggy-doggish story of a Tehran family’s domestic turmoil has one or two slender comic moments to compensate for its deadpan approach. On the eve of her wedding, a young woman (Taraneh Alidoosti) takes a job as a housemaid for a jealous housewife (Hediyeh Tehrani) who suspects her husband (Hamid Parokhnezhad) of fooling around with a recent divorcee (Pantea Bahram) in the same building. Low-key hubbub ensues, with a twist. Not one of Farhadi’s best. He wrote the screenplay with Mani Haghighi (2005, 104 min.).
Director: Asghar Farhadi
Cast: Taraneh Alidoosti, Hedye Tehrani, Hamid Farokhnezhad and Pantea Bahram
