#3. Asghar Farhadi’s The Past
Gist: Farhadi returns to the spotlight after the success of 2011’s A Separation, with a domestic drama about an Iranian man leaving his French wife and 2 children to return to Iran, only to be summoned back to France after his wife asks him for a divorce. With Tahar Rahim (A Prophet) and Berenice Bejo (The Artist).
Prediction: Here’s the math: You have the starlet of The Artist (Bejo), the “it” actor of the Croisette a couple of years back for A Prophet (Rahim), you have a Foreign Film Oscar winner (Farhadi), a shot in Paris – French language film. Memento Films can’t wait to unveil this to international auds. Main Competition berth is most assured.
