The Salesman

The Salesman is a 2016 Iranian drama film which was shot in Tehran in 2015. It's a crime thriller, a psychodrama with Hitchcockian plot twists and a relationship study, about a middle-class Iranian couple Emad and Ranaa. 

Forced to leave their collapsing house, Ranaa and Emad, who happen to be performers rehearsing for Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman", rent a new apartment from one of their fellow performers. Unaware of the fact that the previous tenant had been a woman of ill repute having many clients, they settle down. By a nasty turn of events one of the clients pays a visit to the apartment one night while Ranaa is alone at home taking a bath and the aftermath turns the peaceful life of the couple upside down.

The film premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, where it won two awards  - Best screenplay for Farhadi and Best Actor for Hosseini. It also won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
