CERTIFIED COPY

DIRECTOR: Abbas Kiarostami - FRANCE

This beguiling exploration of art and relationships, his first feature film made outside of Iran, sees Kiarostami producing his most accessible work to date. When an author (played by British opera singer William Shimell) comes to Tuscany to promote his book about the value of copied art, he encounters and spends a day with an antiques dealer (Juliette Binoche, Best Actress, Cannes Film Festival). As they walk, talk, and drive through the beautiful landscape, it at first appears as though they’ve never met. But as time progresses, mystery intrudes. Are they strangers playing the part of a couple, or are they merely pretending to be strangers in the hopes of rekindling their relationship? (106 mins.)

Selected Filmography: Where is the Friend’s Home? (87), Close-Up (90), Through the Olive Trees (94), Taste of Cherry (97), The Wind Will Carry Us (99), Ten (02), Shirin (08).

In French, Italian, and English.

Sponsored by TV5Monde and French American International School, and with the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy.
