A WEDDING SUIT (Abbas Kiarostami, Iran, 1976) 8

In this story of kids engaging in a prank, things not going well and then they try to make things right so the adult world never learns, it's as if Kiarostami emerged fully-formed in 1976. Which, among other things, cautions against interpreting his aesthetic, at least that of the famous early films like the Koker trilogy, as a response to the Islamic Republic and its content codes.
