The main actors are very good with the beautiful Hedye Tehrani, as the other woman, taking top honors. Too bad the story couldn't continue with the character she exhibited at the beginning of the film: smart, confident and forthright (she persists in inviting the married man into her home for a drink -- and ultimately to the bedroom). Her character's backstory was one of the most interesting parts of the story but it was too brief.
