The late Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami specialized in a restrained, meditative cinema that dealt with simple, minimalist stories. But this simplicity often concealed complex philosophical and moral questions. .

A quietly moving work, Taste of Cherry begins with a man driving around the markets of Tehran looking for someone to help him with something, though at first he won’t say what. His journey leads those he meets to question their core beliefs and ethical values and by the film’s end both he and his passengers are profoundly changed by their encounters with each other.
