Life, and Nothing More... ★★★★

A very personal film for Abbas Kiarostami about his travel to the location where a few time before he shot one of his most known work "Where Is the Friend's Home?".

Typical of him, the film is shot and written almost as a documentary, so even the actors here actually feel like real people telling the story of an earthquake that killed hundreds of thousands of people in the location where the aforementioned movie was filmed. It reminded me to "Taste of Cherry" in many ways, though the premise is less grim.

All in all, a very good doc-esque feature that serves as an outlook into a region and how it got affected by tragedy while also serving as perhaps one of the most interesting Special bous behind the scenes.
