Kiarostami’s wonderful, nearly wordless portrait of a young photographer’s assistant who nurses a crush on a girl beyond his reach.

MUBI's take

A heart beats with single-minded intensity in this neorealist portrait of youthful puppy love across the class divide. For what it lacks in speech, Abbas Kiarostami’s urbane, near-silent feature debut makes up for in stunning images of emotional resonance, seen here in a glittering 4K restoration.
