Reviews:

Part of the movie’s brilliance is in how it questions the very concept of a good deed. AV Club

There’s never just one central drama in an Asghar Farhadi film. The Iranian auteur finds ways to bring multiple story lines and culpability together. Toronto Star

In Mr. Farhadi’s hands it’s a deliciously ironic, exquisitely complex and mysteriously stirring tale of a man, his son and family, and the staining of multiple reputations by what seems, at the outset, to be a fairly minor lie. Wall Street Journal

Farhadi might not be a filmmaker you expect to tackle the emotional ramifications of social media, but in his low-key way, he manages to spin Rahim’s diffidence into a shrewd portrait of how random faces in the crowd can sow doubt. ndieWire

A superb morality play that immerses us deeply in a society’s values and rituals and keeps us guessing right to its powerful final shot. Time Out
