“The mother of all my films,” according to Kiarostami. It begins as a breezily observed anecdote about a boy weaving through Tehran alleys with a loaf of bread.
When he encounters a barking dog, the boy must find a way to continue his journey home safely in a poetic work that ultimately illuminates our individual experiences.
