If you have a chance to see « Close-Up » by Abbas Kiarostami (1990), it's a merveille. It's based on a true story. The funny thing is that I was into Nanni Moretti recently, and saw his short film called " The première of Close-Up " but didn't know it was a real film. After this film, your idea of cinema will be changed forever. Also, it's interesting to see an other point of view about Iran: here, you see a trial. The judge, an imam, proposes the litigant to pardon the guilty man after the discussions, as a legal part of the trial process. This is an attenuating circumstance, that's diminishing the prison term. Incredible!
