Conceived during an acid trip as a film about reality, about accepting it and about seeing the higher order at work behind it. The premise behind the film was simple: that the problem is not with reality but with perception.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
I laughed throughout this film, all the way to the final scene and thought "What a funny film this is!". Then as soon as the credits came up it hit me, I suddenly I realised how sad it actually was. As you watch it you dwell on the simple and comically genius escapades Caveh' goes on, yet on relfection its emotionally complicated and heart breaking. I'm embarrassed its taken me so long to see this.
Is it a romantic film or anti-romantic? Well, you couldn't fit his movies into a genre. His are simply about life, of a boy of a girl of a man, with their dream, weird love life, mumbling on the bed, or talking mundane thing about a Queen Bee. Simply touching and hilarious at the same time....definitely one of the best movie about a guy chasing a girl in the last...errrr...20 years?
