Certified Copy (Copie Conforme), by Abbas Kiarostami, 2010

with Juliette Binoche, William Shimell, Jean-Claude Carriere, Agathe Natanson, Gianna Giachetti, Adrian Moore, Angelo Barbagallo, Andrea Laurenzi, Filippo Trojano

In Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami's captivating meditation on art and love, British writer James Miller meets a beautiful gallery owner in Tuscany and begins -- or possibly continues -- a romance with her.

People say it is a subtle movie, about whether these two people are actually close or strangers. It is supposed to be interesting in that sense. I always sense that Juliette Binoche is an amazing actress, who can express the devotion, the embarrassment and the love to the extreme, but she needs a good partner, if not it falls flat. Her partner is bad, the nuances he has in between gentlemen to angry man, but no in between and definitely feels flat. Impossible to follow the subtleties of the game because everything feels fake, overacted. Sad, because the departing idea of the plot is interesting.
