    This is by far the best Kiarostami`s film. Watching it is an amazing journey to human soul.

    See it more than once; you need to be familiar with kiarostami's work before you appreciate it.

    An awesome film. and the "engineer" appears as a good guy--who is really an assassin.

    This is a beautiful film that requires effort on the part of the viewer to truly appreciate. Understanding the political situation in Iran is crucial, and it helps to know some of the other works of Kiarostami.

  1. A celebration of the human spirit nothing short of sublime.
  2. Poetic but tedious and all but plotless.
  3. Kiarostami's genius is elusive. His films may be unknowable, but they are undeniably hypnotic, charismatic.
