Asghar Farhadi's 'A Hero' among potential Oscar winning movies

An American cinematic magazine has predicted that Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi's "A Hero" seems to be one of the top movies, which may win the award for the best film at Oscar 2022.

As the Variety publishes the potential candidates for the Academy Awards, popularly known as the Oscars, the magazine has written on its website the names and characteristics of movies, which may have the best chance to win the awards in 2022.

According to the magazine, the social movie of Ghahreman (A Hero) is one of the best chances.

A Hero was screened for the first time at Cannes Film Festival and Iran’s two-time Oscar winner Asghar Farhadi’s "A Hero" won Cannes Film Festival Grand Prix award jointly with "Compartment No. 6," Juho Kuosmanen’s follow-up to his debut, ‘The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki,’ which won the Un Certain Regard prize for best film in Cannes in 2016.

A Hero shows the story of a man named Rahim, who is behind bars due to an unpaid debt, but during a two-day release from prison, he involves in adventures to convince the creditor to pardon.

The interesting story, which entails sophisticated and paradoxical adventures related to morality, was filmed in Shiraz, Fars province, Iran.

Renowned actors and actresses such as Amir Jadidi, Mohsen Tanabandeh, Fereshteh Sard-Orafaie, and Sarina Farhadi starred in the drama.

"It shouldn’t be a shocker that an international feature from Asghar Farhadi has entered the awards conversation with the vivacious and flavorful A Hero,” the Variety described.

Variety interviewed Farhadi on the sidelines of the Cannes Film Festival, where he said: “From time to time in the news in Iran you get stories about very average people who in their daily lives do something that is very altruistic. And that humane way of making them very noticeable in society for a few days, and then they are forgotten. The story of the rise and fall of these kinds of people was really what interested me.”

"How the Iranian filmmaker chooses to frame his stories has always been compelling, and it’s a quality that has been overlooked by the Academy in his tenure. Perhaps, this could be his ticket to an overdue directing nomination," the Variety noted.
