Biography
He was born in 1940, in Teheran. By 1970, he had directed numerous short films. He then moved on to features. He prefers working with non-professional actors in natural surroundings and his work is marked by a keen Chekhovian sense of humor, tinted with poetry. By the late 1980s he had obtained international recognition. In 1992 he won the Rossellini Prize at Cannes for the sum of his work, and then in 1997 The Taste of Cherry won the Golden Palm, again at Cannes. Also in 1997, Unesco presented him with the Fellini medal. The Wind Will Take Us Away won the Grand Jury Prize at the Venice IFF in 1999.

Like Someone in Love / Abbas Kiarostami

An old man and a young woman meet in Tokyo. She knows nothing about him, he thinks he knows her. He welcomes her into his home, she offers him her body. But the web that is woven between them in the space of twenty- four hours bears no relation to the circumstances of their encounter.
