In honor of Abbas Kiarostami’s birthday we’re showing his final fictional film, an enigmatic and unpredictable drama of the sexes unexpectedly made in Japan. Like so much of the Iranian master’s cinema, it’s a rewarding challenge to expectations and the relationship between appearances and reality.

That estimative, believing quality was Kiarostami’s… way. He could place two people in a room and create unlikely companionship by simply placing two people in a room. In a car. Ear to ear on the phone. He was the rare director whose storytelling created the impact of story-listening.

Kiarostami generates, as perhaps no other filmmaker has before him, a moral relationship with what we are seeing. By a moral relationship I mean not one of moral judgment over what we are seeing but the opposite, the deeply moral encounter with the world that is experienced only by having one’s moral prejudices suspended.

Made with startling economy, Kiarostami finds a million frames we live in. It’s as expertly designed a film as Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant (1972), which convinces one that the German master could shoot in one room forever and never run out of brilliant compositions, and here Kiarostami does the same, from inside vehicles, and in the reflections of windshields, somehow hinting at the myriad possibilities built into every moment of our lives.
