CANNES: Kiarostami's "Certified Copy" (Official Trailer & Poster)


CANNES: Kiarostami's "Certified Copy" (Official Trailer & Poster)
by Darius Kadivar

The First Exclusive Trailer of Abbas Kiarostami''s first Film made outside Iran and in Competition for the Palme D'Or at this year's Cannes Film Festival (12th to 23rd of May, 2010). Starring Juliette Binoche and William Shimell


Plot of Certified Copy:

Set in Tuscany, Certified Copy follows the journey of a British writer (William Shimell) who is giving a series of conferences on Art and the interactions that exist between an original artwork and it’s copy ( a theme illustrated before by such film masters as Orson Welles in F For Fake). He meets a young and beautiful French Arts dealer ( Juliette Binoche) who takes him to a local quaint village and lures him into a game of false identities by suggesting to locals that he is actually her husband. The chemistry between the two protagonists leads to unpredictable situations where the frontier between reality and fiction is often misleading … The film is an indirect tribute by Kiarostami to Roberto Rossellini’s 1954 film Viaggio in Italia aka Journey to Italy.
