    The story of “A Separation” is based on a law in the Torah, which amazingly has been kept in the Queran.. Given that the Queran keeps women in a state of complete subservience, it make a big statement for the right of women to choose… If the person who kills a fetus is aware of the pregnancy, it’s murder. If he is not aware,the mother and she alone is entitled to “blood money: compensating her for her loss. thhe arabic credits came up without a pause as though the film had been cut. When an honoring celebration was scheduled for the success of the film, the powers that be in Iran cancelled the fete. Many endings can be imagined, and perhaps an ending which glorified the women involved would be too much for a represssive regime to allow.. Evy Shareff
