Featuring an unforgettable central performance by Bérénice Bejo ('The Artist', 'Redoubtable') that earned her the Best Actress award at Cannes 2013, 'The Past' is a tight-knit family drama as gripping as any thriller. Following a four-year separation, Ahmad returns to Paris from Tehran, upon his French wife Marie's request, in order to finalise their divorce procedure. During his stay, Ahmad quickly discovers the conflicting nature of Marie's relationship with her daughter, Lucie. But Ahmad's attempts to build bridges between the two soon begin to encroach on Marie's new partner, Samir (Tahar Rahim, 'A Prophet'), and as tensions begin to mount it soon becomes clear that the past is only close behind. . . ★★★★ "Farhadi is reconfirmed as a film-maker of truly international scope" - Mark Kermode's Film of the Week, The Observer ★★★★ "Its severity and cerebral force are beyond question" - Peter Bradshaw's Film of the Week, The Guardian ★★★★ "Bejo is on terrifically fiery form" - Robbie Collin, The Telegraph ★★★★★ "Extraordinary" - Kate Muir, The Times
