When bank employee Nader refuses to emigrate, his wife Simin sues for divorce, citing better opportunities for their daughter outside the country. After Simin decamps from the family apartment, Nader hires Razieh, a devout young woman with a four-year-old daughter to mind his Alzheimer-afflicted father. It soon becomes clear that the chador-clad Razieh is pregnant and looking after the wandering, incontinent, elderly man will tax her energy as well as her religious principles. Moreover, Razieh’s debt-ridden, out-of-work husband doesn’t know that she has taken the job, and would never allow her to enter the home of a strange man. Ultimately, fallout from an ugly argument pits Nader and Razieh against one another in the Iranian legal system, forcing all involved to consider the nature of loyalty, truth and integrity. Tense and dramatically complex, formally dense and morally challenging, this is writer/director Asghar Farhadi’s strongest work yet. The provocative plot casts a revealing light on contemporary Iranian society as it takes on issues of gender, class, justice and honor. Winner:Best Film, Best Actor (ensemble), Best Actress (ensemble), Berlin Film Festival.
