New Film from ‘A Separation’ Director Asghar Farhadi Headed for Oscars

A new Oscar bait film for ‘A Separation’s Asghar Farhadi

Asghar Farhadi, director of the Best Foriegn Language Film of 2012, is at it again. Ruining another marriage to try and take the top spot at the Oscars. His film ‘A Separation‘ exposed Iranian religious and social standards in a heartfelt struggle between families and family members.

His new film ‘The Past‘ is set to do the same in France. Staring Bérénice Bejo from ‘The Artist’, she asks her estranged Iranian husband (Ali Mosaffa) for a divorce to marry her new boyfriend Samir. Her act being seen differently by all who love her: selfishness, longing, respect.

Staring ‘A Prophet’ Tahar Rahim as the boyfriend, ‘The Past’ is a powerhouse of French/Iranian film makers. It is an intense battle of people trying to do what is right and what they want. Two things that are never the same. It is no doubt why Iran has submitted ‘The Past’ as its foreign-language entry in this year’s Oscar race.
