Taste of Cherry
Winner of the Palme dOr at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival, Iranian auteur Abbas Kiarostamis _Taste of Cherry_ is an emotionally complex meditation on life and death. Middle-aged Mr. Badii (Homayoun Ershadi) drives through the hilly outskirts of Tehransearching for someone to rescue or bury him.

"This is one of the great big-screen experiences, comparable in its effect to LECLISSE or 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. Like those films, Abbas Kiarostamis Palme dOr winner confronts some of the essential questions of existence; while Kiarostamis approach may be more modest than Antonionis or Kubricks, the poetic simplicity of TASTE OF CHERRY assumes a monumental quality when projected." - Cine-File

"Cinephiles love to talk about the thrill of pure cinema  the jolting joy of the spectacle that only the medium of film can give us. Some find it in Alfred Hitchcock, others find it in Andy Warhol. I found it in the last place I expected it to be: in the difference, the transition between the two final scenes in Abbas Kiarostamis Taste of Cherry." - Film Critic

"Kiarostami creates a visually austere and serenely contemplative examination of life in A Taste of Cherry: the unchanging, barren scenery outside the car window; the desolate, winding roads leading to the burial plot; the suffocating dust of the construction site. The barren, almost monochromatic landscape serves as a metaphor for the isolation of the soul." - Strictly Film School

"Few films are more attentive to the poignancy of time passing and the slow fading of daylight, so that everyday details over the days progressfrom field workers cheerfully lifting Badiis car out of a rut to a bulldozer emptying dirt and rocks, from a planes wispy exhaust trail in the sky to a glimpse of schoolchildren running around a trackregister increasingly as small signs and epiphanies in an existence thats about to be extinguished." - Reader
