Taste of Cherry (1998)

TASTE OF CHERRY is a long sit.  The listless pacing is a refreshing 
change... until the story starts to repeat itself.  (Plot: man drives 
around outskirts of Tehran, searching for somone to help him commit 
suicide.)  Cannes winner or not, it didn't hold the interest of this 
Westerner.  Weird coda, too, that bumps the viewer into video foot-
age of the filmmaking.  Huh?  Written, directed, and produced by Abbas 
Kiarostami.  In Farsi with English subtitles.  (Not rated/103 min.)
