All of Tehran is preparing to celebrate Chaharshanbe-Soori, or the festival of fire, which falls on the last Tuesday night before the Persian New Year. On this auspicious evening, Rouhi (Taraneh Alidoosti), a young woman from a poor neighborhood, is hired by a middle class couple to clean their house. Sweet, naive, and soon to be married, Rouhi's innocence is shattered when she finds herself in the middle of her employers'' domestic dispute over accusations of infidelity. "Few Iranian films have tried to realistically depict both the urban middle and lower classes, and fewer still with the complexity of story telling and depth of characterization in Asghar Farhadi''s impressive third feature, Fireworks Wednesday" (Deborah Young, Variety). Winner of the Gold Hugo at the Chicago International Film Festival. In Farsi with Asghar Farhadi---Iran---2006---104 mins.
