Which kind of love? Shamed, seductive, fatherly, hourly, angry, humbleeach elliptically reflects the others.
Opaque, but I like it. Sad, witty study of errant behavior; ongoing meditation on the role of the screen.
Synthesizes narrative and conceptual investments, even more fluidly than other Kiarostami projects that tend to favor one over the other.
