Details

 A brilliant exploration of the power of movies, Close-Up reconstructs the true story of a cinephile's attempt to become a filmmaker he admires. Hossein Sabzian introduces himself as celebrated Iranian director Mohsen Makhmalbaf and, under the pretext of working on a film project, enters the private life of a well-to-do Teheran family and eventually faces fraud charges. The films blends documentary and drama by featuring the actual people involved and has a final scene that is described by Geoff Andrew as "one of the sharpest, funniest deconstructions of film form ever shot."

Close-Up is widely considered to be Kiarostami's masterpiece soliciting praise from international directors and film festivals.

  • The Opening Night of Close-Up - a short film by Nanni Moretti
