PG-13 | | Drama, Mystery
A married couple are faced with a difficult decision - to improve the life of their child by moving to another country or to stay in Iran and look after a deteriorating parent who has Alzheimer's disease.
Director Asghar Farhadi's first idea for the movie was the image of a man washing his father, who had Alzheimer's. He built the rest of the film around that scene.

Although Razieh had gone to the doctor to see if her baby is still alive a few hours before she was beaten by Nader, the judge never asked her about the result of medical check. Also after medical examination, it should be clear for Razieh to know about the situation of her baby unless she couldn't reach the doctor at the time.
