Asghar Farhadi’s ‘The Salesman’ picked up the best foreign language film award at the 53rd Guldbagge Awards ceremony, presented by the Swedish Film Institute.

The ceremony was held on January 22 at Cirkus, a cultural venue for concerts and musical shows in Stockholm, the website of the Swedish Film Institute wrote.

Salesman won the Oscar for the best foreign language film last year. It was Farhandi’s second Oscar after his ‘A Separation’ had won in the same category in 2012.

Salesman also took the best actor award for Shahab Hosseini and landed Farhadi the best screenplay award at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016.

The story of Salesman is about a young couple living in Tehran. After their flat is damaged, Emad (Hosseini) and Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti) must move into another apartment. Once relocated, a sudden eruption of violence linked to the previous tenant of their new home dramatically changes their married life creating a simmering tension between the couple.
