The late, great Abbas Kiarostami’s masterpiece about a Tehrani camera crew posing as engineers to film the funeral of a 100-year-old village woman expected to die at any moment, marks a culmination of the filmmaker’s desire for a cinema that encourages the viewer, in his words, “to complete the film.” In a string of sequences that flow and blend into each other, the interactions between the outsiders functioning under certain false pretenses and the locals trying to go about their own lives isn’t a formula for facile conflict, but rather the premise for a profound meditation on existence spanning centuries of culture and human activity. (1999, 118 min., in Persian w/English subtitles)
