BERLIN — Iranian director Asghar Farhadi’s “Nader and Simin, A Separation,” a drama that centers on a disintegrating marriage, won the best movie honor and swept the acting awards at the Berlin film festival on Saturday.
A six-member jury led by actress Isabella Rossellini handed the movie the top Golden Bear prize and its ensemble cast, led by Peyman Moadi and Leila Hatami, both the best actor and the best actress awards.
“I never would have thought that I would win this prize,” Farhadi said as he collected the Golden Bear.
He added that it offers “a very good opportunity to think of the people of my country — the country I grew up in, the country where I learned my stories — a great people.”
The film highlights a clash between traditional and modern ways of living and thinking, as well as class differences.
It chronicles the events that follow a wife’s unsuccessful petition for a divorce, which she seeks when her husband refuses to leave Iran with her and her daughter. He worries about leaving behind his father, who suffers from Alzheimer’s.
