Review for A Separation PG-13
by John Thielking
A Separation is a movie in Arabic with English subtitles that
chronicles a brief period in the life of an Iranian couple who are
caring for the man's father who has Alzheimer's. The wife
leaves Iran for a brief time to go to the USA, and while she is gone
all hell breaks loose. The man tries hiring a caregiver for
his father, but she doesn't work out so well and there is hell to
pay when she accuses the man of causing her miscarriage. Four stars.
The movie ranks as nonviolent because there are only five violent
scenes in it. Two men get into a brief fight, a woman has a
miscarriage, there is a story about a pedestrian being hit by a car,
there is a story of a woman claiming her husband will kill her and a
man hits himself.
The previews included: violent previews for Spartacus and Chico and
Rita and nonviolent previews for The Salt Of Life and Footnote.
