Critic Reviews for Khane-ye doust kodjast? (Where is the Friend's Home?)
On one level Kiarostami paints a society rooted in authoritarian demands, but on another he reminds how us kids get lost in the grown-up world of business and responsibility.
I highly recommend all of Abbas Kiarostami's films, but to start with I'd suggest Where Is the Friend's Home, the simplest and most moving of his films.
The closest thing I've ever seen to an Iranian action film.
It's only because so many directors have done more with a similar set-up that Where is the Friend's Home? feels somewhat lacking.
Audience Reviews for Khane-ye doust kodjast? (Where is the Friend's Home?)
Cute but saddening tale from Kiarostami. Another great slice of Iranian life from the master director. I think the viewpoint of a child makes this all the more compelling. The child can squeeze in places and situations much more efficiently than an adult could in the same situation.
a really simple and lovely film that's a good place to start with kiarostami. the untrained child actors are marvelous here. a young boy has taken his friend's notebook by mistake and must return it to keep his friend from being expelled, but he doesn't know where the friend lives. the boy is blocked at every turn in his quest to do the right thing by adults who won't listen or help. nerve wracking suspense! and i am only half joking :p
One of the few films that I truly admire and recommend EVERYONE to watch at least once in a lifetime. Why is it so beautiful and making me wanna cry just watching a boy running for his friends?
