    Blending fiction and reality in ways that make it a unique experience, Kiarostami creates a fascinating piece of fiction-documentary hybrid that reveals always more and more about its characters and Iranian society (including social issues) than we could imagine to be possible.

    Close-up, just wow. An absolutely stunning film. This is a movie that questions fiction and reality. It's not fully a mockumentary, but is the best mockumentary in the scenes that qualify as one. It's a chilling movie, that's not only essential as far as how much of the small stuff it taught me on film, including some Iranian titles, but it makes a great statement about pretending and true identity. I've been left speechless by the movie, usually if I love a film this much I can ramble on about it, but this film speaks for itself. One of the greatest of the 90s, and a gem of middle eastern cinema. This is also the first new movie in 132 watches that I've given over 4 stars.

    kiarostami's masterpiece, radical cinema. i went in not knowing much about it and i recommend that approach. 'i'm tired of being me'

    <i>Nema-ye Nazdik</i> is Kiarostami's highest peak of excellence and vision. Few times have the realms of reality and fiction been mixed so interestingly. The debate surrounding whether it is a documentary or not is irrelevant. First, we must reach a consensus on what is a "documentary" (the filming and representation of reality), and then, to personally stipulate our definition of "reality". This film tells a true story with the real people involved in it, but re-shot for artistic purposes, or basically, what Sabzian was saying on trial: in honor of the art. Kiarostami understood this fully and still, very intelligently, shown an unclear posture towards Sabzian's character while stating his love for films. It is Kieslowski's <i>Amator</i> but reversed, that is, suppose that Filip Mosz could never buy his precious camera... 97/100
