Director: Abbas Kiarostami

Synopsis: The great Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami (Close-up) travels to Tuscany for a luminous and provocative romance in which nothing is as it appears. What seems at first to be a straightforward tale of two people—played by Oscar-winning actress Juliette Binoche (Blue) and opera singer William Shimell—getting to know each other over the course of an afternoon gradually reveals itself as something richer, stranger, and trickier: a mind-bending reflection on authenticity, in art as well as in relationships. Both cerebrally and emotionally engaging, CERTIFIED COPY (Copie conforme) reminds us that love itself is an enigma.

Language: French

Country of Origin: France

Production Year: 2010
