Iran | 118 minutes | NR | DCP | Dir. Abbas Kiarostami
Irreverent city engineer Behzad comes to a rural village in Iran to keep vigil for a dying relative. In the meanwhile, the film follows his efforts to fit in with the local community and how he changes his own attitudes as a result.
"Kiarostami films the encounters and the landscapes with a patient, painterly tenderness, but his modest methods conceal vast political goals," - Richard Brody, New Yorker
