:Close Up / Nemā-ye Nazdīk

Iran , 1990, 98 min

A brilliant exploration of the power of movies. Frustrated young film buff, who had been posing as Mohsen Makhmalbaf, gets arrested! A headline and consequent article in a Tehran daily newspaper provided Kiarostami with the basic idea for a semi-documentary film. Kiarostami film probes also into the psychological truth of the case.
