Behzad Dourani, the villagers of Siah Dareh.
Kiarostami reclaims his crown as 'greatest living Iranian film director' - no small tribute in the last two years of fine films from that country. This Venice Festival Jury Prize-winning tale of an encounter between westernised sophisticates from Tehran and apparently simple villagers provides a "subtle personal debate about the value of being alive", as the Variety critic put it.


“An eerily flawless masterpiece”

Gilbert Adair, Independent on Sunday
