ABBAS KIAROSTAMI, 1987, 1991, 1994
Where Is the Friend’s Home?, And Life Goes On, Through the Olive Trees
The main character in ‘Where is the friend’s home?’ is the justification for the self-odyssey that the filmmaker decides to undertake in ‘And life goes on’, an alter ego created by Kiarostami, and in ‘Through the olive trees’ a new actor interprets the main character that interprets a minimal scene from ‘And life goes on’ to exhaustion. Every movie is created from the last one and is questioned, shredded and corrected. This work by Kiarostami is a slow and hidden stun that calmly analyzes the new fundamentals in cinema resorting to humor.
