"Like 2011's Oscar-winning 'A Separation,' [The Past] is an exquisitely sculpted family melodrama in which the end of a marriage is merely the beginning of something else, an indelible tapestry of carefully engineereed revelations and deeper human truths." — Variety

"You never feel like you're in the hands of anyone less than a master storyteller." — Time Out New York                                                 

Academy Award® winner Asghar Farhadi (A Separation) continues his career-defining exploration of family dynamics, morality and class conflict. After four years of separation, Ahmad returns to Paris from Tehran to finalize his divorce with his wife Marie. Almost immediately, Ahmad becomes entangled in a new crisis when he discovers his ex- is about to re-marry and her daughter deeply objects. Marie’s new fiancé is the quiet and handsome Samir, an owner of a dry-cleaners and still married to a woman in a coma. Truths are questioned and misunderstandings unfold as Ahmad examines and attempts to stabilize the domestic hostility. Featuring authentic performances from Ali Mosaffa, Bérénice Bejo and Tahar Rahim, THE PAST’s intricate characters, emotionally complex narrative and unexpected revelations confirm Asghar Farhadi’s mastery of filmmaking and storytelling. —Dilcia Barrera
