Many of us loved "A Separation" and this is the latest film by the same director.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle: "The Past" is technically from Iran but will be received by most American audiences as a French film. It's set in Paris; most of the dialog is in French, and the female lead is a French film star, Berenice Bejo. Best known to us as the happy-go-lucky actress in "The Artist" and in France for light comedies, here she plays a woman coming apart. She is about to divorce a man she still loves and is involved with a married man whose wife has been in a coma for 8 months.
