    About Elly (2009)

    A Separation was one of my favourite films of the year, so I'm very excited to discover that one of Farhadi's older films is being released on dvd in the UK this month. I'll see it as soon as I can. Has anyone seen this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HbIRRM-ffc http://www.guardian....out-elly-review

  3. Based on this post and the subsequent comments regarding A Separation, it looks like a film we should make a priority in the coming months...

    The Past (2013)

    Asghar Farhadi's followup to A Separation is called The Past, and it was annoucned this morning as part of the Cannes lineup. Subsequently, an English subtitled trailer was also released this morning. This film wasn't on my radar until now, so I'm pretty excited. Looks very promising, I think.
  5. I suspect this film has been discussed in other threads, but it doesn't have a thread of its own, and it's going to be in my top 10 for this year, so... it gets a thread. Has anyone here seen it? Here's a review by Philip Lopate. I watched it last night, after the Christmas festivities at my parents' house were over. Hard to imagine that a film in which a man paces his apartment, talks on the phone, watches clips from his old movies, and visits with a garbage man could be riveting, but the time flew by. If I ever do another seminar on films about artmaking, I suspect I'll show this. See it if you can.
  6. Agreed... in this regard, his films remind me of Zhang Yimou's rural films, i.e. "The Road Home" and "Not One Less" (which, for some reason, I gave a lacklustre review, but the more I reflect on it the more I like it). Very simple, naturalistic stories infused with gorgeous imagery and themes. The scene in "The Color Of Paradise" where they create the dye from flowers, or the scene in "Baran" with the cobbler, greatly reminded me of the bowl-fixing scene in "The Road Home". Incredibly mundane, everyday events - and yet they take on an almost mystical air in the films.
  7. I'm intrigued by the premise of this new Iranian film, which played at Tribeca. Nick Schager:
