Kiarostami’s classic centres on a young boy determined to return a schoolmate’s notebook he took home by mistake, but unsure of his exact address in a neighbouring village and frequently distracted in his quest by domineering adults. An exhilarating blend of low-key realism and lightly stylised parable – the boy’s repeated journeys resonate with subtle symbolism – the film is funny, insightful and finally deeply moving.
