Well, after many reviews posted here, I just realized I never posted any Iranian films, being so, today I'll post a review of my favorite film of my favorite Iranian director.

At one point in Amadeus, Mozart shocks Emperor Joseph II with a claim that he can sustain a simple opera scene for 20 minutes. As amazing as that is, Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami outdoes Mozart more than... read more

"10.1. Abbas Kiarostamin humaani draama pienestä pojasta, joka haluaa palauttaa ystävänsä kouluvihon pelastaakseen hänet koulusta erottamiselta esittäytyy petollisen yksinkertaisena, mutta on oikeastaan kaikkea muuta kuin sitä. Pojan vankkumaton moraali on jatkuvasti ristiriidassa aikuismaailman tarpeiden ja välinpitämättömyyden kanssa, mutta aluksi hieman naiivilta vaikuttava Ahmed oikoo päättäväisesti aikuismaailman kiemuroita auttaakseen ystäväänsä.

"28.05. PC/TV, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Abbas Kiarostami A beautiful idea for a film, but especially with such a poor-quality copy that I had... acquired, it was pretty difficult to get much more out of it than what I had already gotten from reading the concept beforehand. Also do/did Iranian parents actually give this little shit about their children? Absolutely no one seemed to listen to this kid, which reached somewhat comical proportions. "

" I don't know why, it's not truly sad, but something touched me, and I cried for many minutes after the movie, just so sad for me."
