Ten - A Movie by Abbas Kiarostami
January 14, 2007 1:32pm CST
Ten is a movie by the Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami. He made the movie using cameras fixed on a car's dashboard, reducing its expenses to an amature video recording. But look at the movie, and you will know how he overcomes the limitation of a static camra by using a strong plot and high voltage dialogues, by the travellers in the car. It revolvers around a divorced mother and her teenage son, and other people who get into the car, a woman who sells herself, an elderly woman who visits the mosque and a couple of women who face a lot of issues worth fighting for in their lives. For all those who appreciate the creation of great art that transforms the viewers, this is a must see. it opens a world of contradictions before your eyes, and educates you a lot. I hope those who have seen it will either agree or disagree with me...because it is impossible to stay passive after watching it.I look forward to hear from them.
