Darum geht's

“A frustrated young film-buff, who had been posing as Mohsen Makhmalbaf, gets arrested”. The news provided Kiarostami with the basic idea for a semi-documentary film entitled “Close-up”. Two cameras film the trial, of which one with a close-up lens to probe into the psychological truth of the case.

Close-up Regie Abbas Kiarostami
Empathy, not gamesmanship, is the real core of the film: Kiarostami’s curiosity about the personal and social forces that led Sabzian to keep up this ruse in the first place. The film’s final sequence remains one of cinema’s most moving depictions of an artist bridging the gap between fiction and real-life in a spirit of solidarity.

The film is easily one of the genius feats of construction in lower-case modernist cinema. It may be a witness, its own witness at that, in complicated ways, but its need for an audience is simple charity: you will know your own level of compassion depending on how you react to this tale of ingenuity, daring, humility and mind-boggling legal complications.

[Kiarostami] became famous for open-ended movies that must be completed by the viewer’s imagination, and this film—which opens itself up to greater suspicion with every turn—comes closest to providing a raison d’etre for his innovations. Instead of merely following a movie obsessive’s transformation of life into cinema, CLOSE-UP sees a wave of imagination spread out over everything it touches.
