Friday 23 September 2016
(1974, Director Abbas Kiarostam)
Running time: 71 minutes)
The film depicts a troubled but resourceful boy, Qassem Julayi 's quest to attend a football match at any cost in the small city of Malayer, and his indifference to the effects of his actions on other people, even those closest to him. Thematically, the film explores childhood, societal conventions, and the origins of moral and amoral behavior. Visually, it affords a candid glimpse of Iranian life in the early 1970s.
