The Taste of the Cherry
D: Abbas Kiarostami
Iran 1997, 35 mm, 99 Min., Engl. subtitles

A man who is tired of living travels through the barren countryside outside Tehran. He is searching for someone who will bury him after he has committed suicide. He is unsuccessful at first. Finally a taxidermist, of all people, agrees to help him; but before he does so he shows the old man why he finds life so good.
The Golden Palm, Cannes 1997.
