CC first presents the idea that it is not the object itself but the observer's perception of it which produces meaning (duh), then cunningly embodies that idea (audience's interpretations of the actors' relationship swing wildly from scene to scene), and then finally -- in James -- exposes the cold, rational solipsism at the heart of that idea, taken to its extreme. An unbelievably slippery film, with camerawork that at once both subtly and strikingly assists the exploration of its themes.

Doesn't match the dialogue in Linklater's wonderful, talky dramas. The lines don't - despite great delivery - flow as naturally here, often seeming borderline constructed. The intellectualizing is rather banal and Kiarostami, regrettably, never arrives at a point, satisfied with suggesting that the dichotomy of original and copy is applicable to relationships. Much more observant is the way the protagonists' discussions and backstory (whether real or invented) flesh out believable characters.

Interesting shifts in tone and perspective, however, some turns left me feeling like I knew less and less about these characters than I thought I did. After accompanying them on a long journey, neither they nor the audience really seem to have arrived anywhere, but perhaps thats the whole point.

The first 30 minutes were great. Nice characters, good chemistry, interesting philosophical discussions. The twist really threw me off balance, and I suspect it was Kiarostami's intention (other subtle audiovisual techniques are used to disorient). The second half is much weaker. You really have to imagine it as 2 separate films to make any sense out of it, which is in complete conflict with the visuals. Kiarostami's best-looking film, but I'd rather he dispensed with the experimental bullshit.

Certified Cure for Insomnia. My favorite part is when Juliette Binoche and some old Italian waitress spend six minutes making incredibly trite observations about marriage (Did you know that husbands are stubborn? Well, you do now!) that, accompanied by a laugh track, wouldn't be out of place in Everybody Loves Raymond. But since it's in subtitles with European actors, it's high art. William Shimell's character is a royal douche, one of the most loathsome movie characters of the year.

After spending 40 minutes setting up what could have become a beautifully acted tale of bittersweet courtship, the actors begin 2 behave as if they're another couple entirely. Again& again. W/ every 1 of their banal romantic conversations cut & shaped 2 resemble common generic stock, we're meant 2 wonder who they really r while realizing movies rn't real. Blow me.

Intelligent and expertly done, as one might expect from the names involved, but unsuccessful. This is by far the most polemical film Kiarostami has ever made, and yet it isn't a proper filmic essay like, say, "F for Fake". It's a drama. The characters do have psychologies, they're not bidimensional, so authenticity is expected. Unfortunately, from the onset, all interaction between them is so transparently aimed to demonstrate a philosophical point, that its credibility as a drama is lost.

Beautiful and captivating, but also with an underlying coldness if not desperation. Perhaps there is no absolutely final explanation, but from what I can tell, very few critics or commentators succeeded in deciphering the key elements of the narrative puzzle, whose tragic solution requires only one little step of lateral thinking (see the link for an explanation). It is fascinating to see what Kiarostami does with his first European feature. Binoche is superb. Rewatched July 6, 2016.

Kiarostami has been investigating the line between the real and the recreated for most of his career, so this film about a couple of strangers playing at being spouses, or a couple of spouses playing at being strangers (and what would it matter either way?) is brilliantly up his ally, but only for a few moments where it feels like it might turn into another bickering couple drama, but recovers quickly, and Binoche gives possibly the best performance of her career.

I could have paid better attention to this movie, but Kiarostami doesn't make it easy, and the shift in the middle is at first a clumsy and duplicitous device that isn't entirely successful. The film works less as a narrative and more as an essay on representation and the non-existence of "the thing in and of itself". Yeah, it's stuffy. Even then, I could cull many truths out of the characters' conversation, and Binoche once again demonstrates that she's a badass actress.

Transporting. There is a structural whimsey which is beautiful, overlaid upon two central performances which are astoundingly good. Binoche steals the show in a career-topping performance, but Shimell is no cipher; his anger-within-intimacy most compelling.

"Copie conforme" is interesting, weird and thought-provoking -like an intellectualized version of "Before Sunrise". Although the dialogue isn't as engaging here and the leads not as appealing, this remains constantly intriguing, maybe because Binoche and Shimell work miracles with average material or maybe because the games Kiarostami plays with us are as manipulative as they are effective. The film may be pretentious and it doesn't pay off, but it remains compelling and original throughout.

A magnificent achievement from Kiarostami both in writing and direction, as well as a stand out performance from Binoche, who is more compelling than ever. The camera's gaze slowly humanizes these people, as they grow at once both more concrete and more mysterious. So many moments are beautifully rendered, from the shot beneath the opening credits to them driving through the city in the car to the close-up on Binoche as she gazes into the mirror. Each successive moment reveals and conceals.

Juliette Binoche is beautiful, but this movie is a complete mess! It starts off good with two strangers meeting & having an intellectual conversation, but in the course of one day they end up an old estranged married couple. The plot & dialog is absurd, confusing & stupid. WIlliam Shimell sleep walks through his role. As much as I loved Juliette Binoche I disliked the plot & script. I can see what they were going for, but the writer/director failed since the plot was so pitiful.

The dialogue and acting is sincere, but the central concept didn't intrigue me nor "threw me off" as it seems to for other people.

I guess i found this marginally more engaging than other Kiarostami films that i've seen (which is really not saying much), but still i have the sneaking suspicion that there's less going on here than meets the eye. Like his earlier film Close-Up, it feels like sort of an intellectual game. I think i "get it" but i don't really get it. Basically it plays like an artier, more abstruse take on Linklater's "Before" trilogy with one type of pseudo-profound banter replacing another.

I usually don't go for this kind of Walk Around and Talk About Big Issues type of film, but this one worked fairly well for me. Both actors were great, especially Binoche, and the discussion of authenticity and how things look depending on our perspective is both interesting and plays out well narratively as well, as we learn more about their relationship (or do we?) The ambiguity is interesting. Reminded me a lot of the Before Sunrise Trilogy for a lot of reasons.

Abbas uses the romantic arc to contrast original artwork and our desire to create and attain copies that bring us as close as possible to it's aroused emotions. We are left with some ambiguity on whether or not their exchanges venture off into some truth and real history. We know these familiar gestures and emotions, but something lingering in the back casts a bit of doubt on it's authenticity. Thus the argument presented in it's narrative.

The premise for this film has so much promise - the potential for a cinematic exploration of the semiotic structure of existence - but Kiarostami does not pull it off. He needed to push the ideas further; be more daring in playing with the semiotic. I wonder what Buñuel (the master of blurring real and represented) would have done with the same story. No doubt not cast William Shimell who does not serve the story (Binoche is fine).

Cópia Fiel estreava há 10 anos no Festival de Cannes. Isso é tão bom, mas tão bom que estou me perguntando porque não dou cinco estrelas pra isso.

An involved dive into an intellectual examination in art that has been copied (see: F for Fake) that starts to infect the relationship as well. Some may be put off by the somewhat artificiality of the how the relationship of these two characters evolves in the second half, but it is quite fascinating, especially when comparing this "romance" to long-standing art. Nowadays, it seems like science fiction to see people walking along outdoors in Italy.

Hard to describe, and harder to wrap your head around. The film keeps its audience on its toes as the emotions, relationships and entire histories of its characters seem to shift and transform from scene to scene. And yet, thanks to the strength of the writing and the actors, it is always engaging and fun to watch, never just weird for weirdness' sake.

Effectively functions as the weird step-sibling of the "Before..." trilogy. With perhaps a stronger (or at least a more conceptual) philosophical backbone than the Linklater films, "Certified Copy" manages to relay truly provocative ideas - examining what true originality means in the context of aging, changing relationships. In spite of its depth of thought, the film feels rather cold thanks to its flimsy narrative structure which constantly feels far too jarring to be immersive.

A meditation on how perception informs value. Kiarostami seamlessly traverses us from questioning the importance of authenticity in art and then applying the same arguments to emotions. In the end it isn't important whether or not the artifact is genuine, it only matters how we perceive it. In terms of relationships, our love for a person may be genuine, but their perception of our emotion is paramount.

(Viewed on 15/02/13): With shades of Voyage To Italy and Last Year At Marienbad, Certified Copy does give the initial impression of a conventional European art film box ticking exercise, but its thematic concerns regarding truth and the problem of representation are deeply embedded and connect it to many of Kiarostami's key works. Binoche once again demonstrates that she is arguably the best actress on the planet, and the elegant enigma at its core slowly unfurls in tantalising waves.

I had to read a review on another site before I had an interpretation that made sense to me... that this was meant to walk you through every stage of a relationship in a short span of time.

I enjoyed the laid back sense this film contains, the somewhat contemplative and philosophical angle it contains. I suppose it is a bit like the 'Before' films by Richard Linklater - I'd read that this film was compared to those-thats what made me interested to see it in the first place. Its a character focussed drama, with much of the dialogue about art, perceptions of what is and isnt art, how to view copies of genuine pieces - what is and isn't original and so on. Its a good film overall.

More testament to the utter genius of Kiarostami, this is enigmatic and profound, and by the same turn, pretty unlikeable. So clever is his direction that even the awkward elements (William Shimell, the dialogue, the overall scenario) are part of a fascinating kaleidoscope that intrigues and baffles at the same time. For his first film outside Iran he has managed, quite consciously, to make the ultimate piece of bourgeois self-indulgence.

The film opens with an author giving a lecture on his newly released book about copies and originals, and how he ultimately concludes that a copy can be just as good as the original. The rest of the film is devoted to testing out this thesis through its main couple. A comedy of romantic turmoil (as opposed to a romcom), Kiarostami fashions a film that attempts to stand on the shoulders of the European art film canon and then cheekily twists it to his own ends.

The mystery that emerges halfway through the film is about as deep as you let it be. Is it merely a formal conceit by Kiarostami or is it fully comprehensible by means of realist narrative logic? Do characters transmute or are they playing their own game? The text is just layered enough to support the central theme around copies and originals, and for a film seemingly more engineered than inhabited, Juliet Binoche still proves indispensable.

An engrossing conversation between two characters, like *My Dinner with Andre*, but much more mysterious and poetic--presenting a mediation on notions of reality/illusion, original/copies. "Poetic" because the film could be touching on several meanings and contexts of the notion of original; mysterious because the relationship between the two characters are ambiguous and seems to shift in strange impossible ways.

It works for me with its inconsistencies and unanswered questions because the whole doesn't have to add up to anything if its parts are honest and real, and the film is made up of some very real in-the-now moments. When Binoche rests on an outdoor stair, a moment I wish I could have frozen and painted, do we get any clues about the whole picture? Even if it did not, it was strikingly real then, and that was good enough for me. Which pretty much sums up my feelings about the whole movie.

The conversations here were more engaging than even the Kiarostami films from the 80s and 90s that I loved. Those films always felt a bit tedious even when the content made them worthwhile, whereas this has much more vibrant life; It could also be the actors who are great. Despite increasingly surreal tone of the discussions and the otherwise heavily philosophical and psychological content everything flowed very naturally and even when I was confused I wanted to hear more.

Intriguing but ultimately frustrating puzzle-box of a film; hypnotic and compelling in many ways, thanks to skillful direction by Kiarostami, and exceptional performances from Binoche and especially Shimell. While it is fun to hypothesise on the meaning of it all, a lack of clues as to the 'real' intent/meaning means that it slips out of your hand as you attempt to analyse it. No doubt it will benefit from another viewing some time down the road.

Certified Copy seems almost like a film of another era, from a time when you would go to the theater to see a dangerous piece of art.

Everyone who can live with a movie that denies to give (stupid, silly) answers should watch this. And everyone else: watch it, missunderstand it, hate it - and you can still love Binoche.

The concepts of narrative and art get challenged by the two main characters, first verbally, then in a fashion that defies concrete reason. Reality slowly becomes a vague blur of a notion here, contributing a lasting hypnotic effect on the viewer. What's the point of this? I definitely have no idea, but I sure as hell like thinking about it. In a way it's almost like a symbiosis of academic theory with the craft itself. It's hard to explain, but I have no reservation in calling it very smart.

A long look at the pain that two people in love can inflict on each other. The sharp, quick-paced dialogue of this script creates the illusion of two mirrors in endless reflection, while the characters are surrounded by a beauty which passes them by.
