Asghar Farhadi's 'The Past' with Bérénice Bejo First Subtitled Trailer
"I don't want them to be together." Memento Films International has recently debuted an English subtitled trailer for a highly anticipated film premiering at the Cannes Film Festival. It's titled The Past, originally Le passé in French, and is written/directed by Oscar winning filmmaker Asghar Farhadi of A Separation previously. The film is a contemporary relationship drama starring Bérénice Bejo (The Artist), Tahar Rahim (A Prophet) and Ali Mosaffa (The Last Step). It was just announced as In Competition at Cannes and everything about this looks fantastic, a compelling and emotional follow-up to Farhadi's A Separation.
Here's the very first subtitled trailer for Asghar Farhadi's The Past, found on Vimeo (via The Playlist):
The Past, or Le passé in French, is written and directed by Iranian-born filmmaker Asghar Farhadi, of the films Dancing in the Dust, The Beautiful City, Fireworks Wednesday, About Elly and A Separation, which won the Oscar. The film also deals with a separation: When Ahmad (Mosaffa) returns to Paris after four years in Tehran in order to finalize his divorce from his French wife, a secret from the past is revealed. Paris-based Memento Films produced and will be selling the film in Cannes, where it will be seeking a US distributor. I'm planning to catch the premiere of this in Cannes and review it there. Who wants to see this?
