The male and female, upper-class and lower-class, adult and child characters in Asghar Farhadi’s films remodel variants of the subject’s relationship to the Other. The intertwining of lies and truths into the subject’s fantasy or into the characters’ fictions sometimes (mis)leads the characters into violence, or brings them to face their subjective suffering, or, alternately, makes it possible for them to pass through their experience of mourning and to possible advance. The continuous shifting of the positions, value, perspectives and emotions has an unsettling effect upon the spectator’s subjective relation to the characters’ responsibility and actions.

Keywords: lies and truth, unconscious desire, culpability, responsibility, other, fiction.
