Reeling - Rene Rodriguez

January 26, 2014

The Past (PG-13)

After four years of separation, Ahmad (Ali Mosaffa) travels from Tehran to Paris to finalize his divorce from his wife Marie (The Artist’s Bérénice Bejo) so she can marry her new boyfriend Samir (A Prophet’s Tahar Rahim). Ahmad and Marie haven’t spoken much — he wasn’t even aware she was living with another man — and the moment he steps inside their former home, he feels displaced. He’s no longer the head of the household, but he’s still compelled to fix the kitchen sink or help with the new paint job. There are three children living in the house, including the teenage Lucie (Pauline Burlet), who does her best to spend as little time as possible at home for reasons that are initially undisclosed.
