Another US Trailer for Asghar Farhadi's Marriage Drama 'The Salesman'
"I was waiting for you…" Cohen Media + Amazon Studios have debuted another new US trailer for Asghar Farhadi's latest film, a drama called The Salesman, which first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this summer. The title is in reference to many unique aspects of the plot, but also specifically Arthur Miller's play "Death of a Salesman" which is being performed in the film. The actual story is about a couple whose relationship is tested after an assault incident with his wife while she's home alone. Shahab Hosseini and Taraneh Alidoosti star as the couple. I wrote in my review from Cannes it's "a complex, nuanced film with an intricate script that plays out in a very engrossing way." Recommended viewing once it's out in theaters.
Here's the second US trailer (+ official poster) for Asghar Farhadi's The Salesman, originally from IMDb:
After their old flat becomes damaged, Emad (Shahab Hosseini) and Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti), a young couple living in Tehran, are forced to move into a new apartment. Eventually, an incident linked to the previous tenant of their new home dramatically changes the couple's life. The Salesman (or Forushande) is both written and directed by prominent Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi, of many acclaimed films previously including About Elly, A Separation (which was nominated for Best Screenplay in 2011), and The Past. The film first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year (read my positive review). Cohen Media Group will release Asghar Farhadi's The Salesman in select theaters starting January 27th early next year.
