"He (William Shimell) is a British author in town to talk about his new book. She (Juliette Binoche) is a French gallery owner in search of originality. Together they tour the local galleries, cafes and museums and discover that nothing is quite what it seems and truth, like art, is always open to interpretation. Captivating and hugely entertaining, this acclaimed romantic tale playfully and provocatively blurs the line between reality and imagination."--Container

After being turned away by the owner of a posh jewelry story, and then treated with coldness and condescension on a return visit, Hussein decides that the humiliation is not to be borne.

""Shirin shows audience of more than 100 women who are deeply absorbed in watching a film we never see. We observe how the drama plays out on their faces, seen in close up, mostly one at a time....based on the powerful 12th century Persian poem by Nizami, the film-within-a-film is a story of star-crossed lovers and female self-sacrifice that is as well known in modern-day Iran as Romeo and Juliet is in the West" -- container

"This bilingual edition of recent verse by the celebrated Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami (award-winning director of such films as Close-Up and Taste of Cherry) includes English translations of more than two hundred crystalline, haiku-like poems, together with their Persian originals. The translators, noted Persian literature scholars Ahmad Karimi-Hakkak and Michael Beard, contribute an illuminating introduction to Kiarostami's poetic enterprise, examining its relationship to his unique cinematic corpus and to the traditions of classic and contemporary Persian poetry. Of interest to enthusiasts of cinema and literature alike, Walking with the Wind - the second volume in Harvard Film Archives series "Voices and Visions in Film" - sheds light on a contemporary master who transforms simple fragments of reality into evocative narrative landscapes."--BOOK JACKET

Five 5 long takes dedicated to Yasujiro Ozu ( Visual )
6 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Acclaimed Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami (A taste of cherry, Through the olive trees) pays homage to Yasujiro Ozu, the brilliant Japanese filmmaker whose spare but evocative style has been a major influence on Kiarostami's work. Canny and sublime, the 74-minute film is comprised of five long, apparently single takes of a beach on the Caspian Sea, all focusing on the ocean, comprised of virtually no camera movement and enveloped in rapturous natural sound. Richly poetic and shot on a hand-held DV camera, the film features five extended, apparently single-take sequences. One. The camera accompanies a piece of wood with which the waves are toying at the beach. Two. People are walking along by the seaside. Older people stop, look at the waves, then walk away. Three. Indistinct shapes on a beach in winter. A group of dogs. A love story. Four. Ducks noisily cross the frame in one direction, then the other. Five. A pond; nighttime; frogs; a chorus of sounds, then a storm, and finally dawn."--Container
