From the late master filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami comes this Palme d'Or winning poetic interpretation of issues such as life and death, the modern and traditional, and the local and global.
The film documents the arrival of an engineer and his colleagues from Tehran in a remote village in Iranian Kurdistan. Assumed by the locals—with whom they form an ambivalent relationship—to be archaeologists or telephone engineers, the visitors' behaviour and keen interest in the health of an ailing old woman seem strange and their true motives are shrouded in mystery.
Haunting and visually stunning, this ambiguous comic masterpiece ranks as one of Kiarostami's greatest films.
