The Master teaches how to see, listen, direct and live cinema
27 September 2004 | by (Lisbon, Portugal) – See all my reviews

In this movie, Abbas Kiarostami gives the spectator an outstanding personal view of what is Cinema, how it can be simple and what it isn't or shouldn't be. This is a lesson for those who study cinema and for those who see cinema. An must see if One wants to understand more about movies, and more about the Abbas Kiarostami career. The movie is divided in a series of small episodes, small lessons if you prefer, that cover all the aspects of movie making, from the actors, to the accessories, going through sound and image, and ending with the role of the director and a vision of what is the actual state of cinema. Abbas Kiarostami, reflects, as he drives is four wheel drive, in the scenery of one of is movies, on the condition of cinema, and tryst to give young students material for a profound reflection on each one's work.
