Abbas Kiarostami Iran, 1997

ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film Taste of Cherry

I have a hard time seeing how anyone can find this film boring when it has such a rich representation of humanity and I found the meta-ending to be one of the best example of breaking the fourth wall and a sly critique of the nature of cinema and the advantages afforded by video. The reason I can't quite refer to this as a Masterpiece is that I stopped thinking about shortly after seeing and didn't linger in my mind.
