The Salesman

2017 Oscar Winner: Best Foreign Language Film and 2017 Academy Award winner for best foreign film

After their old flat becomes damaged, Emad (Shahab Hosseini) and Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti), a young couple living in Tehran, are forced to move into a new apartment. However, once relocated, a sudden eruption of violence linked to the previous tenant of their new home dramatically changes the couple's life, creating a simmering tension between husband and wife.
