A Hero (Ghahreman), dir. Asghar Farhadi, Iran / France 2021, 127 min., Persian with English subtitles


It’s difficult not to empathise with affable, gentle-manned Rahim (Amir Jadidi), a traditional sign-maker imprisoned for an unpaid debt to his former brother-in-law. His family are delighted when he surprises them with two days of leave, and have no idea that he plans to repay his debt with a bag of gold coins his girlfriend found on a bus. 

Yet his decision has unexpected consequences, spiralling from a moment of redemption into chaos. As Farhadi gradually – and with characteristically forensic detail – unravels the plot, he underlines that stories too are constructions, and can easily be co-opted; truth really depends on where you stand.
