- "Ostensibly an adaptation of a 12th century Persian poem about a young princess courted by two men, a nobleman and an artist, Kiarostami never shows us the film in question. Instead, we are invited to reconstruct the narrative from dialogue and sound, as well as the emotions that flash across the faces of a rapt, mostly female audience."--Container.
