Finally, a film that can accurately and profoundly scare any single person from getting in a relationship. Scene after scene re-enacts the world of intimate relationship, struggle and happiness. Masterfully directed, acted and edited. Everything you'd expect from Kiarostami.
This was just... wow. Powerful, poetic, deep, all that. It takes ideas from a broad range of films, too: I was thinking it was sort of like a blend of F for Fake and maybe Contempt, with the "travelogue"-ish visual/setting components of La grande bellezza and Call Me by Your Name. I'm really enjoying my first forays into Kiarostami.
Only one of Kiarostami's masterwork, CERTIFIED COPY is so much a view of the west viewed by a citizen of the world as a beautiful, mysterious ode to the surprise, to the uncertain and to life itself. Lovely, riveting filmmaking that put its audience front and center. For Kiarostami, we deserves the same feelings of his characters. I will miss him so much.
I love the vitality always present in his films. He really has this abbility to make cotidianity vibrant. The woman is amazing, impressive... so effortless. I don't know, I don't even know how to describe exactly what Kiarostami's films make me feel... I know I experience some kind of awareness thing but I just can't put it into words. I feel like I discover things in his films that need time to unfold.
A brilliant drama that begins with a realistic approach but then suddenly shifts to a more surrealistic tone after halfway through, becoming so emotionally involving and raising a fascinating discussion about our perception of the value of Art - original or not. http://www.filmotrope.com
