The first instalment of Kiarostami’s deeply humanist “Koker trilogy” is a touching parable and revealing portrait of rural Iranian society.
Kiarostami depicts the adventures of the everyday from the perspective of a schoolboy who, zigzagging through two villages to return his friend’s homework book, is waylaid by the demands of adults. A highly sympathetic, poetic and profound film about the meaning of responsibility and the lives of ordinary people presented in neorealist style with a twist of magic realism.
