Taste of Cherry

1997 Rated NR 1hr 35m

In Iranian director's Abbas Kiarostami's award-winning drama, Mister Badii (Homayoun Ershadi) drives about Tehran looking for someone to bury him when he commits suicide -- or rescue him if he fails. But it's difficult to find anyone who will help. A taxidermist (Abdolrahman Bagheri) eventually agrees, mostly so he can use the money to care for his sick son. But there's another reason -- he once attempted suicide himself.

Other features

Good DVD from Criterion with the usual excellent extras. The picture is as good as it can be-the source materials are not the greatest.
