A Cinematic Pleasure
20 September 2018 | by a-akhavan-bSee all my reviews

This is a cinematographer's film. Kelari, who is mainly a cinematographer, got to direct this film because of an incidence. The arrangement with the original film's director fell apart and producers gave the film to Kelari to direct.

The visuals are gripping, funny and reminded me of Kiarostami's nature shots.

I watched the film in NY's Moma.
