Kiarostami: Life and Nothing More
(NR) Iran – 1 hr 35 min – with subtitles  
1997 · d. Abbas Kiarostami
Starring Homayoun Ershadi, Abdolrahman Bagheri, Mir Hossein Noori

A weary man in a dusty Range Rover searches for someone to help him with an unusual task—to bury him in an unmarked grave after he takes his own life. But once he finally recruits an aide, his new partner tries to convince him of the merits of being alive. Meditatively spare, yet opening into profound mystery and wonder, Taste of Cherry was awarded the Palme d’Or at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival.
