Kiarostami's masterpiece. A young man introduces himself as celebrated Iranian director Mohsen Makhmalbaf and, under the pretext of working on a film project, enters the private life of a well-to-do Teheran family. Extras: Opening night of Close Up -Short film Nanni Moretti. Close Up in Close Up, by film critics and programmer Geoff Andrew.
A complex and witty deconstruction of film form, playing with the notions of drama and documentary, reality and fiction. --The Guardian

Top Customer Reviews
I recommend highly the Criterion American release - essential commentary track, picture quality and extras.
Tehran is the backdrop, with the social dvisions resulting in pain that goes beyond the material, almost Dickensian.
As is typical of Kiarostami's films, the majority of the roles are played by non-actors, in this case by the actual persons involved in the true life tale . From the family that our pretend filmaker tries to con, to the real filmaker in person, Mohsen Makhmalbaf.
A touching journey of desire, fabrication and remorse.
Of course, this is a Kiarostami film – slow-moving, episodic, very wordy and one where the audience is invited to think for themselves.Read more ›
