Certified Copy
Iran, 2010. Directed by Abbas Kiarostami. 106 min. NR.

Persian Cinema Nights are curated by NAC Member Sahar Saeidi. Sahar is a poet and guest film programmer, showcasing a taste of Iranian Film’s greatest hits. Sahar was born in the UAE and arrived in Canada in 2004.

While touring Tuscany, Italy, promoting his new book, English author James (William Shimell) meets French store owner Elle (Juliette Binoche), and the two hit it off, deciding to spend a free day together. They travel to a nearby town, get coffee, visit a museum and pretend to be recently married in what turns out to be a popular wedding destination. As these two strangers get to know each other, however, it becomes clear there’s more to their new relationship than meets the eye.

“What it comes down to is: we assume there’s more going on here than meets the eye, but maybe what meets the eye is all that’s going on, and there is no complete, objective reality. I can explain Blow-Up [Antonioni, 1966] and L’Avventura [1960] to my own satisfaction. This is the best I can do with Certified Copy. Perhaps it was wrong of me to even try” -Roger Ebert
