kiarostami has a sense of rhythm in his movies that few others master. the movie unfolds slowly and just when it's about to lose pace there's a slight turn in its direction. it holds up for the majority of the movie, but eventually one starts wondering how it will end. when the end finally comes, its purpose flies right above my head and understanding. working in a psychiatric ward myself, I found the view on depression and suicide to be simplistic at best.

The more I delve into Kiarostami's work, the more I'm reminded of cinema's potential to bend its self-imposed rules so as to engage the viewer into a contemplative state where reality and fiction coalesce seamlessly into a harmonious, interdependent whole. And as much as the film's first half was a chore to sit through, I was decidedly won over by its sincere and affecting examination of the sadness and short-lived beauty of human existence. A great film from a truly great filmmaker.

Despite being a fan of Kiarostami as well as all the deliberation involved in Iranian New Wave films, I have to agree with R. Ebert that the "style here is an affectation". It's easy to romanticize life by giving lectures & suggesting that a taste of cherry is a reason to choose life over death when viewers don't know anything about the main character, his life,or his existential anguish. This film does incorporate a minimalist approach but not one that contributes to substance or deeper meaning

Kiarostami' suicide road movie never feels heavy at all. Instead, it's almost a contemplative, optimistic work about a man willing to die -- and to find someone who can bury him afterwards. It's the kind of film in which every shot counts, a masterful film about humanity in its purest, most fundamental aspects (memory, life, death, courage, fear), a narrative about dirt and skin, a man willing to reconnect with dust -- and it's not even one of the auteur's finest!

Follows one Mr. Badii (Homayon Ershadi) as he tries to recruit someone to bury him after his suicide, conversing in turn with a young soldier, a Quranic seminarist, and an aged taxidermist who shares his own story of suicide averted. Thoughtful meditation on life and human connection, enigmatic by design but nonetheless evocative and moving, though the scenes with the seminarist and the fourth-wall breaking coda don't quite come off, and it dips a bit into conventional storytelling near the end.

(...) Wäre es aber nicht hilfreich, ihn etwas besser zu kennen? Wissen wir überhaupt etwas von ihm? Kiarostami unternimmt keinen Versuch, uns diesen Mann näher zu bringen. Er lässt ihn nur bedeutungsschwanger in die Ferne blicken. Und ist es notwendig, dass wir Kiarostamis Kamerateam manchmal im Bild sehen? Soll uns das bewusst machen, dass eben alles nur ein Film ist?(...) (Dazu gibts unsere Film List "Arthaus Iran" auf cinegeek.de
