The only nuptial condition an inveterate chain smoker receives from his perfume-testing fiancee is to quit smoking. This poses a problem for the advertising agency ideas man for whom smoking is all part of the creative process.
This is simply a very detailed set of lessons and ideas from kiarostami on the unique formula he has struck for making films. kiarostami lovers will find it definitely fulfils their thirst for thoughts on his genius. if you're not a huge fan, this, like his movies, will seem slow and too detailed for some. you will learn about: why he loves cars as settings so much. how he thinks digital video cameras are the most important new thing ever. plus thoughts on music, actors, [lack of] screenplay, etc. etc. etc. Fun -- he gives the lesson from a car's drivers seat as he drives around. Just like his movies! clever.
