One thought on “Your feedback on A Separation

  1. ‘Excellent’: 18 votes
    => Brilliant! Marvellous depiction of moral choices and where no one was wrong or wholly right.
    => Totally brilliant – best film this year! Really engrossing and thought-provoking, with many layers of meaning.
    => Absolutely gripping narrative – and well observed. A real insight into how ordinary people live in Iran. And much to think about vis-à-vis the ‘class’ system and how religious belief impinges on it! Great!
    => Intense & powerful
    => Incredibly powerful & terribly sad. Impossible to imagine how East & West can ever really understand each other when the position of women is as it is in the Muslim tradition. Beautifully acted – so much emotion & so little physical contact!
    => It confirmed that events control people and that Iran has a humane justice system.
    => Well-acted, realistic. Another [sorry, I can’t make out the word] film!!
    => Very well acted. Drew one in completely to their predicaments.
    => Wonderful film! Second viewing for me & just as good second time around. Very moving, superbly acted – especially Termeh and the Grandfather
    => An excellent, complex film full of impossible dilemmas.
    => A film of impossible decisions. The uncertain ending seemed appropriate.
    => Very absorbing. The acting was superb: more documentary (it was so convincing) yet gave us drama too.
    => Too drained to write much. Those performances! How did they do it? All those confrontations & dilemmas, totally convincing & clear. I liked the social class angle. Wonderful contrast between fiery parents and calm daughter.
    => A far different view of Iran than portrayed by the media – although subservient to men, women still have a voice. Excellent, inconclusive ending.
    => Amazing
    => A fascinating snapshot of the moral issues that confront a family in a Muslim & devout family.
    => A wonderful, humane film. It gives a picture of daily life in Iran which we never normally get. The best film of the season, outstanding!

    ‘Very Good: 8 votes
    => Wow! A maze of moral dilemmas. Well-acted & nice ending (in that it didn’t conclude everything).
    => Well directed. Well performed. Too prolonged?
    => Sad subject.
    => Superb acting – held my attention, although about 10-15 minutes too long because of the extended arguing.
    => Very interesting film – interesting to see the day to day life in Iran & the position of women in society. A very watchable 2 hours.
