A Separation (Jodaeiye Nader az Simin)

Iran 2011

Details imdb

Seen 28 April 2012

Twists and turns, truths and lies

IMDB 8.6/10
Rotten Tomatoes Audience 94% liked it
The premise might seem ordinary but played against the cultural and religious background of the protagonists, it becomes a captivating mixture of human emotions. Deserves a 9.0 out of 10

My impressions:

The separation was the starting point
Hard to accept
Nevertheless has to be done
Without considering the consequences
The chain of events that follow
Can either party be responsible

When others are involved
The complications
The knots
Become more entangled

The agony, going through the red tape
The bureaucracy
Always there to remind oneself
That what we face is insignificant
It is just one of many
Countless, faceless, nameless cases
With others facing the same situation
Even worse than ours

We try to come to terms
With the situation at hand
But life is not a simple case
Open and shut
It meanders along its way
Finding its own path
Dependent on those involved
