Mina Mohammad Khani,
Ten minutes only, and a whole bunch of universes: the universe of narrow, long, empty streets, potentially oppressive, the universe of genuine fear, the universe of feelings of the animal: hostility, joy, disappointment.
A road within a spacial context rather arid, and situations emerging suddenly and developing on their own: from this first movie Kiarostami knew that the extraordinary is hidden in the banality of everyday; he knew that an artist is an observer, capturing any situation and letting it to develop on its own. Watch this first movie ten minutes long, watch Taste of Cherry, watch Ten: the same great artistic concept.
