One of the great landmarks of the Iranian "New Wave" cinema, Where Is My Friend's Home? has become a modern classic, reflective, visually stunning, and profoundly poetic.
Taking its title from a verse by the great Persian poet & painter Sohrab Sepehri, this film tells a deceptively simple tale of two classmates in rural Iran. 8-year-old Ahmad discovers, to his dismay, that he has accidentally taken home the notebook of school chum Mohammad-Reza. Mohammad-Reza has already been threatened with expulsion for failure to do his homework, so young Ahmad sets off to the next village in search of his friend's house, only to encounter a labyrinthine maze of narrow alleys, winding streets, and identical-looking dwellings -and unhelpful adults who obstruct his progress at every turn.
The subtle, lyrical, neorealist style, convincing performances from a non-professional cast, and sensitive, enlightened portrayal of the lives of children showcase Kiarostami's great gifts at their very finest.
