    ★★★★

    Serendipitously watching this after tasting the sweetest toot (mulberry) picked by a loved one from their yard, I understand how it could save a mans life. Life is sweet, and no one captures it better. I have always thought I could feel his movies breathe, but especially here where it is about just that

    Also, not sure if this is a better ad for Range Rover or TaskRabbit...

Though it follows the devastating aftermath of an earthquake, Kiarostami manages to make this film a warm dream that I never wanted to wake up from. Maybe it was the camerawork, color palette, or a sense of intimacy with a country and people that I miss. But I think it was the reminder of what it means to be human and the freedom that comes with realizing our insignificance and that life simply goes on...
