Taste of Cherry (1997) Poster

Trivia

The film was shot without a proper script, relying on improvisations.
Abbas Kiarostami shot each of his actors separately with him either sitting in the driver's or passenger seat. He would instigate conversations with his non-professional actors and film the responses.
The film's coda was to a certain extent unplanned, according to an interview with Kiarostami. After they had filmed preliminary versions of the final scene, they did the final scene proper, but the lab accidentally destroyed these final reels. Kiarostami then decided that the off-focus and colors of the test reels worked, and used those instead.
Chosen by "Les Cahiers du cinéma" (France) as one of the 10 best pictures of 1997 (#06).
