Asghar Farhadi’s film follows Rahim, the kind of man who believes his charm and niceness can get him out of a jam. Freed from jail for two days he is looking forward to seeing his supportive sister, his son and secret girlfriend.
When the girlfriend stumbles upon a bag of gold coins, the path to repaying his debts and freedom looks clear. However, events spiral when the coins are found to be a lot less valuable. Seeking to garner good publicity instead, Rahim returns the coins to their owner claiming to have found the bag himself – a small lie with huge ramifications. 4 Stars - The Guardian
