From one of the true masters of world cinema, Abbas Kiarostami’s deceptive masterpiece is at times beautiful, enigmatic and funny. Set in a small mountainous village, the daily routine of its inhabitants is momentarily interrupted when a small group of outsiders on a mysterious mission arrive. As the story unfolds, we learn that the strangers are a television crew sent from Tehran to await the death of an old woman in order to cover the funeral practices of the village. Unfortunately, the village operates on its own schedule and the leader of the crew spends much of his time adjusting to it and becoming acquainted with the locals.
