Abbas Kiarostami
Taste of Cherry
1997

A man drives around the outskirts of Tehran looking for someone to perform a simple, yet grim task for him. The pace of this Palme d'Or-winning film is languid, with long passages taking place inside the man's car, but it is also compelling and quite beautiful. Taste of Cherry offers a meditation, not only on life and death, but on storytelling itself.
