When Simin’s husband Nader refuses to grant her a divorce, she returns to her parents’ home. Nader hires a young woman to assist in his wife’s absence, hoping his life will return to normal. However, after discovering that the new maid has been lying, he realizes there is more on the line than just his marriage.
Most of the movie was shot using a handheld camera.
The first-ever movie to win 3 Bears from Berlin Film Festival. Farhadi’s win came against the backdrop of the jail sentence handed down to Iranian director Jafar Panahi, who was scheduled to be a member of this year’s jury, but was prohibited from attending the festival owing to his recent conviction by the Iranian government for producing propaganda against the Islamic establishment.
