DVD RECOMMENDATION: A SEPARATION

Looking for a DVD for the weekend? Check out...

A SEPARATION

A married couple are faced with a difficult decision - to improve the life of their child by moving to another country or to stay in Iran and look after a deteriorating parent who has Alzheimer's disease.

A great movie with nuanced performances from all cast. Superb story telling on multiple levels, cultural, social, family - the fabric of ordinary people's lives unravelling. Great to see a movie based in modern Iran and makes one realise that relationships suffer from similar strains whatever the culture.

****1/2
