Storyline

What happens in the moments before and after a photograph is taken? 24 Frames answers this question and unites the two artistic languages Kiarostami dedicated his life to. Melancholic and joyous, serious and mischievous, it's a refined meditation on the passage of time and on the fragility of existence - themes central to the cinema of this revered Iranian director.

Terrible posthumous exploitation of a great directors name
12 March 2018 | by ivan-539-53078See all my reviews

I had the misfortune of buying tickets to see this at the London Film Festival and actually getting there on time. I was one of the few people who persevered and watched the whole thing. Most left after the first scenes. The lucky ones. It's a collection of scenes with most being a fixed camera pointed at some room or landscape, nothing happens, no dialogue or voiceover or humans. It should have been a 10 minute short, but someone decided to exploit a great directors name and create this 2 hour abomination that the credited director would have never allowed to be published had he been alive. If you're curious make sure to download it so you can fast forward through most of it, nothing happens anyway, no surprises. Once you see the first frame of a scene, the rest is just it for 5 minutes. That the film was part of the LFF program is just incredible. The whole concept was so poorly executed it's simply astonishing it would be shown anywhere. I doubt they watched it at all.

If a movie doesn't have dialogue, then the scenes have to be powerful, emotive or at least beautiful to the point of moving you at least a little. Art is supposed to make you feel or think. This just makes you wish you had left earlier. There is nothing there. Probably the worst movie ever made. Kiarostami is rolling in his grave.
