(1999, Iran, PG)

A school window is broken, and children can't concentrate because the rain is getting in. The culprit isn't allowed back into class until he mends it. He sets off to fetch a large pane of glass across the countryside. The wind blows; but will he crack? In the hands of writer Abbas Kiarostami and director Mohammad-Ali Talebi, this simplest of stories becomes an epic quest, poetic and breathtakingly beautiful. It has big-hearted humanism, but Hitchcockian tension too. An unmissable, edge-of-seat masterpiece.
