The connections [Kiarostami] makes between his cinema and Italian neo-realism will interest scholars, students and fledgling directors.

Mark R. Leeper

His approach to filmmaking is highly individualistic, though much of his individual style is an adaptation to the constraints of making films in Iran.

Manohla Dargis
New York Times

A tediously didactic, often condescendingly reductive 10-part lesson on cinema.

Even the most loyal fans of the Iranian master won't want to pass up the chance to see this.

Less illuminating than pedantic, as well as tediously self-absorbed.
