A happy group of friends travels from Tehran  to the shores of the Caspian Sea on a three-day vacation. There are three couples: Sepideh and her husband Amir, who have a young daughter; Shohreh and her husband Peymān, who have two young children, including a son, Arash; and Nāzy and her husband Manuchehr. The trip is planned by Sepideh, who brings along  the young kindergarten teacher Elly, with the aim of marrying her with the Ahma,d who has come for a few days to Iran from Germany.


Once the company has settled, Elly starts to behave strangely and wants to leave, but Sepideh insists on staying When one of the children play on the beach and is almost drowned, Elli disappears inexplicably from the scene. So Elly's disappearance causes unbelievable, justified rioting because no one  knows if Elly has left or drowned in her attempt to save the child. The team members  begin to blame each other and a series of secrets and lies are revealed. The atmosphere changes From light and affluent, it becomes serious and tense. Even the elements of nature seem to adjust to human reactions as the  secrets and lies come to the surface, lies that eventually return to haunt those who have said it.

Asghar Farhadi turns a simple case into a social drama that combines inner tension, agony and excellent psychological character analysis that reveals  the fragility and  hypocrisy of  human relationships Asgar Faradhy infiltrates their soul and reveals the characteristics that lead them to adopt a particular attitude towards a drama  By the time the mystery is solved, it hardly seems to matter. What matters is the bitter consequences of many hidden truths and moral issues.


Actress Golshifteh Farahani as Seppideh gives a great performance, although the authorities wanted to censor the film in Iran due to her presence,  since she had been banned from returning home after acting in Ridley Scott’s "Body of Lies".

"About Elly" is an excellent film, penetrating the superficial relationships of people. Couples are torn in front of the overturning of their everyday lives. Key phrase for the project and Ahmad is:  "Better a bitter end than an endless bitterness."
