Guess what? I’m about to start my project with a brief take on Kiarostmi’s most recent film, “Certified Copy.”
I stepped into the theatre, ignoring the movie critiques I had read and with no expectation whatsoever, and came out with a big smile on my face. The long shots; the beautiful script, switching dialogues between French, English and Italian; the brilliant performances by Juliette Binoche (no surprise!) and William Shimell; made it an altogether enjoyable viewing experience.
Unlike most people, I tend not to compare a movie to the director’s previous projects. Even then, I would still give this a high rating amongst Kiarostami’s other films.
… so yes, it was totally my cuppa.
