7th Art: A Separation (2011)

One of the best movies of the last few years comes from the most unexpected country: Iran. The movie is called "A Separation" ("Jodaeiye Nader az Simin") and was directed and written by Asghar Farhadi.

As it always happens in closed societies, talented artists overcome censorship through labyrinthine stories and indirect denunciation of the establishment. "A Separation" is a masterful example of the power of art to circumvent restrictions to freedom of expression.

If you like strong and realistic dramas with the most impressive direction and acting, and because of limited distribution won't have the opportunity to enjoy it on the silver screen, make sure to find a DVD copy and to watch it! Here is the trailer:
