"A fascinating close-up of someone we can all relate to who might have some issues drawing lines in his life. The ending, with the audio flubs and all, might be some of the purest, heartfelt filmmaking of the 90s. The form is incredible, the story is nuts in a wonderful low-key way that makes it infinitely relatable, and the character is just far too interesting to watch go on monologues trying to explain himself."

"14.1. Close-Upin taso vaihtelee elokuvan sisällä todella kiehtovan ja ihan vain puuduttavan välillä. Puhuvia päitä on liikaa, fokus on hukkateillä hetkittäin ja konseptin nerokkuus paljastuu oikeastaan vasta loppumetreillä. Viimeiset 15-20 minuuttia onkin sitten melkoista elokuvan juhlaa, jossa kuljetaan monenmoisilla elokuvallisilla metatasoilla, päästään aika paljon syvemmälle Sabzianin hahmoon ja ajatuksiin sisään ja täten perustellaan menestyksekkäästi koko teoksen olema"

"14.1. (Teatteri/35 mm) Mahmud Ahmadinežadin näköinen, itseään esittävä tyyppi kusettaa olevansa elokuvaohjaaja ja tätä nuhdellaan oikeudessa. Abbas vie kameransa tämän trialiin ja laittaa tyypin rekonstruoimaan perseilyitään. Jotenkin arvasin kaikkien muiden pitävän tätä mestariteoksena. Nimimerkki Tumppi on puolestaan antanut Abbasille puoli tähteä. Kehotan häntä pisteyttämään myös tämän elokuvat, koska ne ovat kuulemma näkemättä paskaa."

"Another Kiarostami film. DON'T read anything about this one. It's just cinematic perfection. You will ask yourself what am I watching? What is this? Just wait... you'll find out. "
