The first film in Kiarostamis sublime, interlacing Koker Trilogy takes a simple premise a boy searches for the home of his classmate, whose school notebook he has accidentally taken  and transforms it into a miraculous childs-eye adventure of the everyday. As our young hero zig-zags determinedly across two towns, aided (and sometimes misdirected) by those he encounters, his quest becomes both a revealing portrait of rural Iranian society in all its richness and complexity and a touching parable about the meaning of personal responsibility. Sensitive and profound, Where is the Friends House? is shot through with all the beauty, tension, and wonder a single day can contain.

Description courtesy of Janus films.

Where is the Friends House? has all the qualities that put Iranian cinema on the map: formal simplicity, emotional directness, and the use of children as a window into societal ills.  The New York Times

Poke beneath the films surface and youll find a movie about the moral duties we owe to each other in any society, about what it means to be a good person, and about taking care of each other.  Vox

Friends Home is so much more than a simple rehashing of Italian neorealist traditions; it is rich in symbolism and poetic form.  In Review
