Asghar Farhadi Iran, 2006

SiIencio's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

Resting on two major pillars, superb acting across the board and Farhadi's empathetic eye for unearthing human sensitivities, the energetic Fireworks Wednesday has the ability to show us once more how simple mundane stories can be elevated to beautiful works of art with simply talent and wisdom. Iranian cinema is a major film-making powerhouse thanks to elegant works like this.
