The Salesman

Another go see.  A film shot in Tehran.  Delivered in Persian. A story premised on law enforcement is not good, but that the revenge is not a murder (e.g.”Elle“), but humiliation.  Started with a digger just happening to undermine the foundations of a block of flats.  A teacher with an excellent rapport with his students.  All wrapped around a theatre group portraying “Death of a Salesman” (whose themes it apparently echoes).

An Oscar winner for Best Foreign film, but the director / writer had decided t0 boycott the ceremony because of Trump’s order on immigration.
Sadiq Khan hosted a free screening of the movie in Trafalgar Square on Oscar night.
