The gifted director Panahi confronts class divisions within contemporary society through this dark story that begins with a violent jewelry store robbery gone awry. In flashback, the life of the main perpetrator – an overweight Tehran pizza delivery man played by non-professional Emadeddin – is brought out of the shadows. The tense, spare and compassionate screenplay is by the great Abbas Kiarostami.
