Sitting near the very top of our most-anticipated films of 2013 is the next work from Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, who last gave us the Academy Award-winning drama A Separation. Led by The Artist star Bérénice Bejo and A Prophet‘s Tahar Rahim, The Past is all but confirmed to premiere in competition at Cannes and now the first trailer and poster have arrived today, thanks to Allocine.
Although it’s not subtitled (we’ll update that as soon as it pops up), one can glean that Farhadi is continuing his masterful skill of creating intense, personal dramatic work. The story concerns an Iranian man (Ali Mosaffa) who goes back to his home country after wanting a divorce from his wife in France, but when he returns, he finds that his significant other has moved on. Check out the first trailer in HD and poster below for the film that will hopefully get U.S. distribution soon.
Update: Check out a version with subtitles below for the film that will play in competition.
The Past opens in May internationally after a likely Cannes bow.
