Young and innocent, Rouhi revels in the prospect of her imminent wedding, but she sees the other side of marriage when she comes to clean for a couple in the middle of an explosive domestic conflict. Is Mojdeh’s paranoia unwarranted, or is Morteza really having an affair with the woman next door? Thanks to a tremendous script, marvellous central performances and Farhadi’s trademark subtle shifts of perspective, we are repeatedly forced to question our assumptions, leading to ever-greater sympathy for all the characters.
