Abbas Kiarostami Iran, 1997

Andrei Herea's rating of the film Taste of Cherry

Enthralling film. Apparently simple yet thematically complex. Kiarostami masterfully captures Iranian life in a most realistic and sincere way. Everything that appears on the screen has its own meaning. I truly feel that there is something to be learned about their culture, beliefs and way of life - if one keeps his eyes and mind open. With this film I full-heartedly declare myself a fan and admirer of his work.
