A Taste Of Cherry Review


As far as Iranian films about a man looking for someone to bury his body after he kills himself goes, A Taste of Cherry (Iranian title Ta'm e guilass) is a pretty good entry into the genre. While it's interminably slow and I still haven't quite figured out why they went with the copout ending, I can't say it's not an interesting film. Who'd a thunk? Ultimately, the movie is more of a simple allegory on a man's life and less of a study on the Iranian way of life -- which is probably a good thing. Fascinating work from the prolific Abbas Kiarostami.

Aka Ta'm e guilass.
