The biggest winner of the 69th Cannes Film Festival is Iranian director and screenwriter Asghar Farhadi for Forushande (The Salesman).

The Iran-France co-production movie tells a story in which Emad and Rana, forced out of their apartment due to dangerous works on a neighboring building, move into a new flat in the center of Tehran. An incident linked to the previous tenant will dramatically change the young couple's life.
