So I did!
After getting tremendously pumped with the trailer, I ended up seeing Le Passe (2013) two days after I published my previous post.
Directed by Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi, known for bringing us in 2012 the Oscar winning A Separation (2011), this new venture of his was able to emulate - to a certain extent - his previous success, by being nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, having lost to this year’s sensation Blue is the warmest color (2013).
Despite coming short in the race for the coveted award, Le Passe is deserving of high praise. Story is well written and very gripping, the directing is great and acting is at a very high standard… although I must say, I felt that in certain occasions the actors could have stepped up just a little bit, however, this terrific cast lead by Berenice Bejo, Tahar Rahim and Ali Mosaffa is in great form.
I highly recommend it!
