Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami’s first European film features a luminous performance from Juliette Binoche, playing opposite opera singer William Shimel, who makes his screen debut as starchy academic James Miller. At Arezzo in Tuscany, Miller discusses a new book in which he suggests copies can be just as worthwhile as originals. Antiques dealer Binoche drives him to the hill town of Lucignano where they chat and flirt, and when they are assumed to be a married couple neither of them denies it. Is the relationship genuine or an elaborate act of role playing and does it even matter?
A playful, sun-kissed musing on the blurring of art and life, artifice and reality.
Allan Hunter, Daily Express.
The movie's strengths are a teasing script and Binoche's chameleon-emotioned performance, which won the Best Actress prize at Cannes Nigel Andrews, Financial Times.
