Columbia Film Society Presents "The Salesman"

The Salesman is the second foreign language Oscar for Iranian director Asghar Farhardi (A Separation). Emad and Rana, married theater actors costarring in a Farsi production of Death of a Salesman, move into a new apartment, though one where the previous occupant (a loose woman, according to neighbors’ gossip) has not cleared out all of her belongings. One night while Rana is home alone, she is attacked by an intruder. Marital problems ensue as Emad insists on tracking down the perpetrator of the attack. It is in the midst of this painful tale of crime and punishment that the spirit of Willy Loman makes its improbable, powerful and surprisingly literal return. The Salesman is about trust and honor, about violence against women in a patriarchal society, about the woe that is in marriage, but it is also about death, a salesman and the hidden brutality of class. NY Times. (In Persian) (125 minutes).
