Kiarostami reminds us of humanity,
This review is from: Close-Up [VHS] (VHS Tape)
kiarostami captures undisputedly the essence of man's existence in this life. we spend so much of our lives competing against each other for material gains that we lose ourselves. what must remain is humanity. initially the story takes a while to grasp. because it is shot in part/dramatisation part/documentary the story takes on a realness but also a staged performance. anyway kiarostami captures the spirit of human kindness and understanding. forgiving the human capability to make mistakes from our relation to society. touching from beginning to end in a most unsentimental & unpretentious way.
