‘The Past’, from Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi, releases a US Trailer

The Past

2011′s A Separation was a quiet force in the film world, as the fifth feature from then little-known filmmaker Asghar Farhadi gathered momentum from word of mouth praise from the critical community, eventually winning an Academy Award for Best Foreign Film. With many interested in seeing what direction Farhadi would go in next, his new feature has been making its way along festival circuits over the year.  Adapted from a story by Massoumeh Lahidji, Farhadi once again takes on screenwriting and directing duties, working with a cast that includes The Artist‘s Berenice Bejo and A Prophet‘s Tahar Rahim. A US trailer for the film, titled Le Passé or The Past, has now been released, and can be seen below.

There was once a time when I thought Scarface was the best movie ever made, and Home Improvement was appointment television for me. While I still have a soft spot for both, those days of naivete are long behind me, as I’ve subsequently managed to broaden my horizons. Ambition is the most important part of a movie for me; if it tries to do something unique, tell a well-worn story in a different way, or take on large themes in a honest manner, I can forgive many flaws. If there’s one movie fact I’ve learnt after all these years, it’s that Employee of The Month is to Office Space what fast food is to fresh fruit.
