A major minimalist departure for Kiarostami.

A very interesting film, despite structural limitations that keep it from approaching greatness.

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.

Ten may strain your patience but that's the high-stakes gamble of this provocative project.

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.

It shows us, in an extraordinarily simple way, the hopes and frustrations of one woman's life.

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.

No ordinary moviegoer, whether Iranian or American, can be expected to relate to [Kiarostami's] films. They exist for film festivals, film critics and film classes.

Ten has been praised as a further distillation of Kiarostami's already minimalist cinema. That's true enough, even if his movies still have a tendency to make us carsick.

Kiarostami is nothing if not patient, almost to a fault here. He allows life to happen as the film rolls, and one can't help but wonder if, to cover a lot of emotional ground, you must also cover a lot of asphalt.

Makes maximum use of a minimalist structure to deliver some cogent observations about the status of women in contemporary Iran.

Ten might not be the easiest film for Hollywood-conditioned viewers to get into or to enjoy, but it never seems like an arid experiment.

A glimpse into a society that has grown more open, more free, and also more casually selfish in its interpersonal aggression.

These 10 sequences are moments frozen in time, which reveal a surprising amount about the emotional lives of the movie's characters.
