Bilge Ebiri’s review published on Letterboxd:
Incredible film, and I love how it moves from simplicity -- astounding, maddening, almost Kafkaesque simplicity -- to something far more poetic and existential. I just about lost it when the old carpenter told the young boy, "I built your father's cradle."
Rewatched the entire Koker trilogy upon learning of Kiarostami's death, also as preparation for my tribute to him. More here: www.villagevoice.com/film/postmodern-need-not-mean-post-human-abbas-kiarostami-and-the-paradox-of-cinema-8824026
