"The deceptively simple plot of the late Abbas Kiarostami’s Taste of Cherry masks the depths it plumbs in its characterizations and ideas. Middle-aged Mr. Badii (Homayoun Ershadi) drives through a barren landscape looking for somebody to agree to bury him after he takes his own life. Badii is calm about his decision, despite the entreaties of each of the three candidates he tries to persuade, as their conversations become an evolving philosophical argument about the value of life. Featuring a conclusion that is one of the most debated and discussed in the history of cinema, this is perhaps Kiarostami’s most enduring masterpiece.

(Abbas Kiarostami, 1997, 35mm, Persian with subtitles, 95 minutes)"
