TASTE OF CHERRY
TA'M E GUILASS
1997, Janus Films, 95 min, Iran/France, Dir: Abbas Kiarostami

Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival, Abbas Kiarostami’s emotionally complex look at life and death elevated the Iranian auteur from the rank of critically admired storyteller to one of the premier names in international filmmaking. Middle-aged Mr. Badii (Homayoun Ershadi) drives through the hilly outskirts of Tehran - searching for someone to rescue or bury him.
