#045: Taste Of Cherry

criterion45ABBAS KIAROSTAMI

1997

Sometimes you have weird taste and you’re lucky to have a family that gets you.  Abbas Kiarostami’s Palme D’Or Winner is not my favourite of his films, it’s one that took me a long time to appreciate, and his career took me a while to really get into.  My favourite memory associated with it, though, was one that made me love one of my aunts for letting me have my eclectic idea of entertainment and just going with it.  To help me appreciate the film itself, I invited playwright and producer Michael Stittle to talk to me about the ways that Kiarostami address society and mortality.
