ABSTRACT
THE PAST 140 mins ASGHAR FARHADI'S last film, A Separation of 2011, about a painful family break-up in Tehran, made on a budget of a few hundred thousand dollars, won both the Golden Globe and the Oscar for best foreign language film. It's a movie that pays attention to actions and consequences with rare conviction. Now Farhadi, still only 41, has made his first film outside Iran, in French (a language it seems he does not speak) with a French producer and a French star, Berenice Bejo (who won fame as Peppy in her husband Michel Hazanavicius's Oscar winner The Artist, also of 2011). The Past (Le Passe) tackles the same themes of marital breakdown and in particular the irreparable consequences for the children involved in an even graver, more sombre and overwhelming way.
