A Separation (2011)
Wow, this movie. The setting is Iran where the people are very religious and male dominant and those have an affect on the events that transpire. Nader and Simin are married, but Simin wants to leave the country because she wants her daughter to grow up in a better place; however, Nader can’t leave because his father is old and has Alzheimer’s disease. When Nader hires a woman to take of his father during the day, things get bad for them all. I loved the cinematography in this movie. There are some beautiful shots from unusual angles, and it’s great. The movie is good, too. About human everyday life, so it’s good. It’s one hell of a separation where it ends at the place it began. The issue isn’t fully resolved, but I prefer it that way.
