A new film from Oscar-winning filmmaker Asghar Farhadi (A Separation), starring Bérénice Bejo (The Artist).

Following a four year separation, Ahmad returns to Paris from Tehran, upon his estranged French wife Marie (Bérénice Bejo)'s request, in order to finalize their divorce procedure so she can marry her new boyfriend Samir.

During his tense brief stay, Ahmad discovers the conflicting nature of Marie's relationship with her teenage daughter Lucie (Pauline Burlet). Ahmad's efforts to improve this relationship soon unveil a secret from their past.

Bejo's searing performance won her the Best Actress prize at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.
