The best way to look at this is as an acting exercise. As long as your patience holds, it's mildly diverting.

. The basic plot - a man and a woman traveling and talking - is reminiscent of Richard Linklater's Before Sunrise/Before Sunset films, but the way in which Certified Copy calls into question the nature of reality is more akin to Inception.

I believe the movie is ambiguous on purpose. The director is having fun playing games with the underlying reality. This bizarre highbrow film is strictly geared for art houses. It is instantly forgettable, but Binoche gives an amazing performance.

One of those films that's a joy to watch and even more of a joy to think about afterward. It's an amazing film that will stay with you for days, if not weeks.

The conclusion is abrupt and unsatisfying, but the philosophical dialogue Kiarostami manages to keep aloft for well over an hour touches on intriguing questions of openness, self-honesty, and personal freedom.

This one practically screams "foreign film" ... and that's a good thing.

An arid, enigmatic oddity...more an act of cinematic provocation than an affecting drama.

The movie threatens to become a sketch about a coquette and a boor squabbling at each other to little effect.

For anyone with an appreciation for such things, "Certified Copy" is a mental workout of the most invigorating sort.

Think Before Sunrise but more snobbishly aware of its own fancy pedigree.

A spectacularly adroit and daring piece of cinematic legerdemain, Abbas Kiarostami's "Certified Copy" may be too clever for its own good.

suggests a master filmmaker comfortable in his themes and his artistry.

There's a divinely comical lightness to Binoche here: Even in states of conniption and complaint, she's floating, albeit manically.

Although clever, well acted, and full of nicely photographed mirrors, this feels more like an acting exercise than a genuine movie.

Certified Copy may represent a return of sorts for Kiarostami, to a film that more resembles traditional narrative storytelling -- but the structural daring typical of the director's work over the last decade is still front and center.
