    Great film. Not Kiarostami's best though. Economical, radical & socio-human filmmaking here, with the 95 minute film taking place completely in a car with a woman crusing through the streets of Iran & her conversations with people along the way, including her son, sister, a prostitute, etc. Definitely one of the best of the year (so far).

    It's great and diffrent from the other films of kiarostami. when the film is finished you feel something and it makes you think.(and i shoud say all his films actually creates a commen sense inside the spectators) and ten makes a diffrent one.

    After the first conversation, the relationship between mother and son was well established; the film would have been stronger if the son hadn't shown up as much, especially since every other character was far more fascinating. Touching and intelligible, if not, at times, trying.

    10 dazzling and perceptive snapshots of women with which femmes everywhere can identify.
  2. Iran's greatest filmmaker is fond of stripping personalities bare through conversations they have while riding in cars. Here he pushes his favorite dramatic device to its limit.
  3. There's no doubt that Kiarostami is giving us a lesson in social politics, but the education lies in the mosaic pieced together from conversations and situations.
