The Sales­man (Forushande) (M) An award-win­ning mar­i­tal drama from Ira­nian di­rec­tor As­ghar Farhadi in which a cou­ple is forced to move to an­other apart­ment af­ter an earth­quake se­ri­ously dam­ages their build­ing, only to dis­cover the for­mer ten­ant was a pros­ti­tute. This leads to a num­ber of un­ex­pected de­vel­op­ments and places se­ri­ous strains on the mar­riage. The ti­tle refers to Arthur Miller’s Death of a Sales­man. The act­ing is im­pec­ca­ble and the di­rec­tor’s skill at com­bin­ing an anal­y­sis of a mar­riage with dra­matic ex­te­rior con­flict is sec­ond to none. Lo­gan
