Great cinematography. Perhaps one too many trips to higher ground. Main character fairly unlikeable through most of the film. Key moments fill in what's going on to some extent but still a vagueness hangs over it all. 3.25 stars..

I just have to mention how relieved I was when the turtle flipped back on its feet. For those wondering what the movie is 'about,' it's quite obviously an (ahead-of-its-time) argument for ...Read more

Was the bone floating in the water ...Read more

I wanted to like this film because the cinematography is so beautiful. As long as "the Engineer" was in the village, the minor characters made up for the lack of any discernible story line. Once he left the village though, and was driving around talking to people, there was just nothing ...Read more

Sweeping vistas, interpersonal little dramas, unseen off screen but present character. Nicely done for the cinema enthusiast. For the general movie watcher, it may have been a bit slow moving.

Kiarostami was a master at these seemingly simple stories that suddenly reveal humanistic depth and empathy and take a hold of the viewer. It's one of those slow developing films that makes you discover the plot without any overly talky exposition. If you give it the time, you might just find ...Read more
