In Tehran in the eighties, a young man impersonated famous director Mohsen Makhmalbaf and lied his way into a family’s home. This bizarre real-life news event inspired this fascinating and intensely moving documentary-fiction from the great Iranian director Kiarostami, a meditation on art and identity like no other. It’s one of just a handful of true modernist milestones in the history of cinema.
