What the critics are saying:
"There's a lovely sense, throughout the film, of how real life sometimes interrupts things, the way a child's prattling disrupts the pretty wedding ceremony, or how even in the midst of grief breakfast must be made." - Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"It undoubtedly manages to grasp your attention with an outstanding central performance by Penélope Cruz (one of her best to date) cementing this as a hard hitting, harrowing and compelling picture." - Jak-Luke Sharp, Film Inquiry
"Asghar Farhadi once again displays his knack for capturing the human condition. Superb performances especially Javier Bardem and Ricardo Darín." - Joe Friar, The Victoria Advocate
