An email to payvand.com about "A separation":
I don't even know if I am sending this to the right place. But, know one thing; this movie was one of the most important movies I have ever seen (70 years old). I had to write to say how affected my husband and I were by... everything in this movie from the story to every moment of the acting.
This movie was shown at a small film festival in northern Ontario one night only and from the beginning to the end there was not a cough, move or one bite of food taken because of the intensity that we were picked up by and gently let down at the end of the movie.
Don't get me started on metaphors ... we sat up talking for hours about it.
This is an important movie and you are an amazing director/writer/investor. The world needs your vision.
Thank you for your movie.
