Will test your powers of attention. The effort is worth every minute.


The New York Times by Dana Stevens

Its effects seem more like those of a poem or a piece of music than a movie. Requires the reverent darkness and communal solitude of a theater.


Variety by Deborah Young

Takes the refined work of Iranian helmer Abbas Kiarostami up another notch to ever more metaphoric ground.


L.A. Weekly by Ella Taylor

"Nothing happening" is everything happening between the lines, in the gap created between what is unstated onscreen and what we bring to the story ourselves.


Chicago Tribune by Michael Wilmington

A film poem of sometimes humbling beauty: a movie that opens up a new world to us - in the mountains of Iranian Kurdistan - with an enchanting freshness and austerity of vision.
