Perfect
21 October 2000 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

Think of it as Iranian neo-realism, except without squalid poverty or the second act dramatic turnaround of Jafar Panahi's The Mirror. This follows three Iranian teens, one of whom works in a tailor's shop. A new suit is being made for a fourth, upper-class teen and his two friends both want to borrow it. Inevitable complications arise. For 52 minutes, Kiarostami follows his subjects through work and play, constantly shooting their mouths off and trying to avoid getting in trouble with their guardians. This is a fascinating look at life before the revolution with a generous dose of humor. Kiarostami has said that if his film cans could talk, this one would say, "Why did you make me this length?" The barely hour long running time ensures that this perfect little gem will never get the exposure it deserves.
