A Hero

Directed by Asghar Farhadi

Farhadi’s signature cinematic web-weaving is deployed to captivating effect in his Cannes Grand Prix-winning drama – a reflection on the grey line between right and wrong. It’s difficult not to empathise with affable, gentle-mannered Rahim (Jadidi), a traditional sign-maker imprisoned for an unpaid debt to his former brother-in-law.

His family are delighted when he surprises them with two days of leave and have no idea that he plans to repay his debt with a bag of gold coins his girlfriend found on a bus. Yet his decision has unexpected consequences, spiralling from a moment of redemption into chaos.
