Kiarostami is really one of the great masters of cinema.
Taste of Cherry has so so much humanity in its 99 minute runtime. For such a depressing and desperate central theme and plot, this film is so bright and full of life. Kiarostami taps into Tarkovsky with the meditative photography of Iran’s landscapes.
Whenever Kiarostami starts with a car scene (as in Close-Up) you’re in for a masterpiece.
Screened on 35mm at the Metrograph Theatre in Lower East Side, Manhattan, New York.
