Reviews:
"Bruising but elegant, conceptually intricate within a street-realist style, The Salesman asks through its final shots: when we stare at each other, do we see each other, or only ourselves?" Film Comment Magazine
"Asghar Farhadi's film yields a tonal and emotional friction that's simultaneously tragic, transcendent, and comic." Slant Magazine
