2002. France/Iran. Written and directed by Abbas Kiarostami. Shooting with a small video camera mounted on the dashboard of a Tehran taxi, Kiarostami records a series of 10 conversations between a female driver and her passengers, including one regular whose collapsing marriage has provoked the anxiety and anger of her young son. As always, Kiarostami develops a powerful creative tension between the scripted and the improvised, the planned and the unpredictable. Courtesy Zeitgeist. In Farsi; English subtitles. 94 min.
