After a decade of experimental video projects, Kiarostami left Iran behind and traveled to France for his return to narrative filmmaking. In this absorbing multilingual dissection of a relationship, Juliette Binoche (who won Best Actress at Cannes for this role) plays an antiques dealer who is involved with a philosopher (British opera star William Shimell). Internationally, critics applauded Kiarostami’s craft, with the French Excessif reporting, “With a formally refined technique and an incredible sense of frames within frames, the Iranian filmmaker offers a lesson in cinema. Each framework is a fixed organic tableau where the depth of field and the games of mirrors shape a sensory architecture.”

presented in 35mm
