Taste of Cherry A philosophical tale of a man so tired of life that he wants to commit suicide. Cruising the outskirts of Tehran, Mr Badii (Homayon Ershadi) unsuccessfully searches for an accomplice who is willing to bury him after his death, until he finally strikes a bargain with a museum guard. But before the guard agrees to do the deed, he wants to know why Mr Badii wants so desperately to die and dispense with the joys of nature, such as the taste of cherries. Internationally celebrated as one of the most important directors at work today, Kiarostami's road movie is a tale of self-discovery and an unexpected affirmation of the very things that make life worth living.
