"There is a formal pleasure and fascination in the way Farhadi juxtaposes the grim, complex scenes of the couple's real life with the scenes from Arthur Miller's play, with its formal demonstrations of emotion. Messy realism and classically proportioned tragedy are set down, side by side." (The Guardian)
