Directed by Abbas Kiarostami
Voted one of the 100 Greatest Films of the 21st Century, TEN is 50% off on our webstore for a limited time.
World-renowned Iranian writer-director Abbas Kiarostami (Taste of Cherry, Through the Olive Trees) has created a deceptively simple work—shot on digital video within the confines of a single vehicle—that brings the intricate nature of Iran’s sexual and social politics into sharp focus. Seen through the eyes of a beautiful, chador-clad divorcée, the film catches her impromptu conversations with various female passengers (and her imperious young son) as she navigates Tehran’s congested and vibrant streets over the course of several days. As Kiarostami’s “dashboard cam” eavesdrops on these extraordinary and moving stories of sex, divorce, love and religion, an entirely original and fascinating portrait of modern Iran emerges.
DVD Extras Include:
- Behind-the scenes documentary 10 on Ten (2004, 83 mins):
a feature-length cinematic master class directed by Kiarostami
- Kiarostami filmography and production notes
