Quick review:
Nominated for an Oscar for best foreign film, Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi’s latest domestic masterwork is about a pair of young husband-and-wife actors (Shahab Hosseini and Taraneh Alidoosti), rehearsing for a new production of “Death of a Salesman,” whose world falls apart when an intruder almost assaults the wife. Her husband becomes possessed by rage and vengeance and loses his humanity.
