"13.3.2014 Odotin ajelemista, kivoja keskusteluja autossa ja sen ulkopuolella ja suunnilleen sitä sain. Lopun viiksekäs yksinpuhelija on varsin mainio ilmestys, mutta muuten keskustelut olisivat voineet mennä enemmän asiaan. Close-Upistakin tuttu realistinen jutustelu-dialogi ei toiminut siis tässä ihan niin hyvin, tai siis, ei ainakaan ihan koko ajan. En odottanut esimerkiksi mitään sellaista, että päähenkilö alkaisi kertomaan syitä omiin suunnitelmiinsa, koska sellaista ei tarvitt"

"10.05. PC, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Abbas Kiarostami Hypnotic and calming film with clever cinematography that builds tensions interestingly. I found the ending somewhat abrupt and non-fitting, though. "

" You'd think a film about a suicidal man who goes through with it wouldn't be life affirming but you'd be wrong (maybe my reaction is strange). "

Dear Cinema Diary - Vol 3 E5 - May 2012 (32 movies items)

" Plot: An Iranian man drives his truck in search of someone who will quietly bury him under a cherry tree after he commits suicide. OK, so the plot of the film was almost enough to keep me from watching the film. I had just watched "Goodbye Solo" (2008) and wasn't too excited about watching another film involving suicide. The film can also be a bit tedious as the main character drives around the same ugly hills all day long looking for someone to help him. While the ending can be open to interp"
