(Persia Digest) – “Variety” entertainment magazine has listed two-time Oscar winner Asghar Farhadi’s new film on the list of its top movies for 2018.
These days, we often hear Farhadi’s name for his feature the “Salesman” which won the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar in 2016. His latest project “Everybody knows” will premier in 2018 and has made the list of “Variety” entertainment magazine as one of the most-awaited movies of the New Year, among other lists.
The Spanish language feature of Iranian director Asghar Farhadi “Everybody knows” is listed on Variety critics’ list alongside the latest movies of Steven Spielberg, Wes Anderson, Steve McQueen, Jacques Audiard, Zhang Yimou, Darren Aronofsky …
Owen Gleiberman, Variety chief critic, has said about Farhadi’s new film: “When some filmmakers talk about making a thriller, they mean they want to find psychological vibrations in real life. This is also expected of Farhadi’s new project after his three brilliant movies “A Separation”, “The Past”, and “Salesman”. In his previous movies, the main protagonists were Iranian characters. This time, Farhadi has traveled to Spain to tell the story of a Spanish woman who returns home for a family reunion to face a complex set of unexpected events, starring Penelope Cruz.”
It is interesting to note that, apart from the prominent cast of Spanish actors such as Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem, Farhadi has yet again entrusted the editing of his movie to Iranian Haydeh Safiyari who has worked on all his other movies.
