Abbas Kiarostami has created, for all of its filmic simplicity - static camera, minimalist settings and obviously from the hip filmmaking (you can watch as the curious drive by the lady's car and rubberneck) - has created a nicely complex character study

Who would have thought a movie centered on a driver and her passengers that never leaves the car could be so compellingly watchable? Ten is not only a fascinating character study, but a portrait of an entire way of life.

A little more reach would have allowed Ten to turn it up to 11.

Whatever the film lacks in physical lyricism, it makes up for with a claustrophobic flair that leads you to conclude that Ten can be the loneliest number.

A rare chance for viewers to eavesdrop on everyday talk in Tehran that, although fictionalized, must approximate what really happens in Iran's busy capital.

For little more than the price of a tank of gas and a video camera, Kiarostami lets his viewers drive a mile in another's shoes. It's not often that a road trip is so educational.

When you stagger out of the theatre after watching the new Iranian movie Ten, you may find yourself wondering just what, exactly, was the point.

A conceptual tour de force and a brainiac's road movie, Abbas Kiarostami's Ten goes from chilly abstraction to hot emotion in less than 60 seconds.

Very soon it's clear that even from a camera trained on the front seat of a car, an amazingly full and complex portrait of Iranian life can emerge.
