It powerfully reminds us of the persuasiveness of art as it simultaneously stresses the humanist perspective of its singular, innovative creator.

Shirin isn't nearly as dull as it sounds; the melodramatic, passionate "Shirin" story drives everything forward, and gazing at the faces of these amazing women can be a compelling experience in itself.

for all the probing beauty of Kiarostami's close-ups, Shirin depends entirely on a concept better suited to a shorter duration. By the 20-minute mark, the viewer has got it - and from there on in, the film is just a pretty face (or several).
