About Elly Review

Image for About Elly

A group of Iranian friends take a short holiday to the shore of the Caspian Sea. Elly (Alidoosti), the teacher of one of their daughters, comes along to meet a teacher who's visiting Iran from Germany. Things turn sour, however, when Elly goes missing.


Switching assuredly from 
chic satire to tense mystery after 
a female teacher goes missing from a Caspian resort, this lacerating study of class, gender, traditional niceties and new realities is every bit as condemnatory of Iranian society as A Separation.

A Separation director Farhadi’s gifted storytelling and direction is on show again in a damning look at Iranian society.
