And Life Goes On (Zendegi va digar hich) (Life, and Nothing More)
Part fiction, part documentary and part road movie, this film takes place in the aftermath of an earthquake which killed more than 50,000 people in northern Iran in 1990. A father and his young son set out to learn the fate of the two young boys who starred in Kiarostami's "Where Is the Friend's Home?" As they travel through the devastated yet beautiful landscape, their interviews with survivors coalesce into a moving portrait of human resilience.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a film that denies even the most rudimentary of dramatic arcs: Nothing happens, and yet life erupts all around."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Parallax View
"So natural are Kiarostami's non-professional actors, that the line between fiction and non-fiction is continually blurred."
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"An amazing film that never fails to hold your interest."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"The responsibility that Kiarostami feels toward truth combined with the genuine compassion that he displays toward his "characters" makes the film profoundly humanistic."
‑ Jeremy Heilman,
"If one thing is evident, it's that Kiarostami enjoys blurring the line between real life and fiction."
‑ Jon Popick, Planet Sick-Boy
