Synopsis

“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.
