Editorial Reviews

Product Description

A vibrant, daringly original work from Abbas Kiarostami, Shirin is the flowering of an experimentalist streak that s been evident in many of the director s most well-known features: Close-Up, Taste of Cherry, The Wind Will Carry Us, Ten.

Ostensibly an adaptation of a 12th century Persian poem about a young princess courted by two men, a nobleman and an artist, Kiarostami never shows us the film in question. Instead, we are compelled to reconstruct the narrative from dialogue and sound, as well as the emotions that flash across the faces of a rapt, mostly female audience.

A movie about a movie we never see, Shirin makes us active participants in a unique cinematic experience.

- Taste of Shirin (2008, 27 minutes), a documentary by Hamideh Razavi on the making of the film
- Roads of Kiarostami (2005, 30 minutes), a short film by Abbas Kiarostami
- Rug (2006, 6 minutes), a short film by Abbas Kiarostami
- Essay by film critic Jonathan Rosenbaum


"An illusionist tour de force." --Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

"A feast for the bedazzled eye. A brilliantly composed, sensually vibrant visual text. Kiarostami fabricates a fascinating tension between film narrative and film imagery." --Ronnie Scheib, Variety

"Shirin marks another highly original exploration. I don t expect to see a better film for quite some time." --David Bordwell
