Read Campbell Dalglish's review here.
"With exquisite patience and attention to detail, Asghar Farhadi, the writer and director, builds a solid and suspenseful plot out of ordinary incidents and packs it with rich and resonant ideas.” — A.O. Scott, New York Times
“Fresh off its Oscar nomination for Best Foreign-Language film, Asghar Farhadi's The Salesman is a dazzling, darkly funny, quietly devastating human drama from Iran. You are in the hands of a major film artist.” — Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"It's another of the director's analytical but deeply empathetic films about modern Iranian society and what separates men from women and the government from its people.” — David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
