Abbas Kiarostami Iran, 1997

Slow Immersion's rating of the film Taste of Cherry

Life/death, Maybe man's greatest dilemma or temptation, and this may well be one of the best on that. Although I have interest in other forms, this was one of the most important films in my early formative years, where I was questioning life in an existential way, and contemplating suicide in that light; to the endless years of viewing suicide as the inevitable end, because of life's miserable emptiness. RIP Abbas.
