A Hero / Ghahreman

by Asghar Farhadi Gala Premieres

Unable to pay his debts, Rahim is taken into custody. After being granted a two-day parole, he attempts to get his lender to write off part of the debt and withdraw the charges. When Rahim finds a handbag full of gold pieces and returns it to the owner instead of helping himself, he is suddenly celebrated in the media as an upstanding citizen. Unexpected coincidence or elaborate plan? Oscar winner Asghar Farhadi’s moral drama about honour and the price of freedom carefully unrolls to reveal little by little what is truly at stake for the main character. This Iranian master director is unrivalled when it comes to telling life’s seemingly small stories in a great way. His film won the Grand Prix at this year's Cannes Festival.
