On Friday, February 17, 7:45 at Quadra Community Centre, Friday Flicks presents The Salesman.
Forushande (The Salesman) is the story of a couple whose relationship begins to turn sour during their performance of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman. Farhadi’s use of dialogue is deliberate and heavy, allowing for incredible work by his cast. The narrative creates tension that ratchets up in sly increments. It is the casual disregard for the wishes of women and the complete misunderstanding of women by men – that is where the film finds greatest purchase.
Oscar nomination - Best Foreign Language Film of the Year
