Chaharshanbe-soori

Asghar Farhadi Iran, 2006

Ben Dooley's rating of the film Fireworks Wednesday

A subtle melodramatic love triangle between an upper-middle-class couple and the hairdresser in their apartment block. It has some contrived drama, centred on gaslighting, but also has a playful performance from Alidosti as the working class maid, soon to be married, who sees (and smells) it all, and whose chador becomes part of the intrigue. A carefully framed narrative, full of interesting details of Iranian life.
