In The Salesman (Asghar Farhadi), what did the intruder do?
In the Asghar Farhadi film "The Salesman," the audience is kept in the dark most of the time about what actually happened in the apartment.
When Emad finds the perpetrator, at first he denies going into the bathroom, saying he only heard her screaming then fled.
But later, after Emad returns, he says "I behaved very badly... I was tempted." Is he admitting that he raped her, or is he admitting that he just went into the bathroom and saw her naked? Or, is it intentionally ambiguous?
