The new French and Iranian movie of Asghar Farhadi, “Forushande” (The client), is released today in French cinemas.

It is a story of an Iranian couple who have to leave their flat in Tehran due to new constructions. They move in a new flat and an incident with the old flatmate will disrupt the couple. This thriller movie is starred by Shahab Hosseini and Taraneh Alidousti.

Since its parution on 31st August in Iran, the movie was criticized by conservative media. The subject was seen by some newspapers in Iran as a way for the westerners to confirm their negative image of Iran and the Islam.

This movie received an award for the men interpretation and the scenario at the last Cannes Festival.

“Between a criminal movie and a psychological study, this beautiful movie confirms the sensitive talent of its author,” stated MetroNews.
