TEHRAN -- “The Past”, a family drama by Iranian Oscar-winning director Asghar Farhadi, has received nominations in five categories at France’s César Awards 2014.
The film will contend with six French films for the Best Feature Film Award of the festival.
The films are “9 Month-Stretch” directed by Albert Dupontel, “Me, Myself and Mum” by Abdellatif Kechiche, “Stranger by the Lake” by Alain Guiraudie, “Jimmy P.” by Arnaud Desplechin, “Venus in Fur” by Roman Polanski and “Blue Is The Warmest Color” by Abdellatif Kechiche.
“The Past” has also received nominations in the categories of best director and best original screenplay.
The film’s star Berenice Bejo, who won the Palme d’Or for Best Actress at the Cannes Film Festival in 2013, has been nominated for best actress award at César Awards.
In addition, Juliette Welfling has earned a nomination in the category of best editing for her collaboration in “The Past”.
Described as the French equivalent of the Oscars, the 39th annual César awards will be presented at a ceremony in Paris on February 28. 
The French-language film is Farhadi’s first project shot outside of his homeland. It is about an Iranian man, who has ongoing domestic problems with his French wife. He deserts her and his two children to go back to Iran.
Farhadi’s Oscar-winning film “A Separation” won the César award for best foreign language film in 2012.
