Movie Info

For what would prove to be his final film, Iranian director AbbasKiarostami gave himself a challenge: to create a dialogue between hiswork as a filmmaker and his work as a photographer, bridging the twoart forms to which he had dedicated his life. Setting out toreconstruct the moments immediately before and after a photograph istaken, Kiarostami selected twenty-four still images, most of them starklandscapes inhabited only by foraging birds and other wildlife, and digitally animated them into subtly evolving four-and-a-half-minutevignettes, creating a series of poignant studies in movement,perception, and time. A sustained meditation on the process of imagemaking, 24 Frames is a graceful and elegiac farewell from one of thegiants of world cinema.

Critic Reviews for 24 Frames

All Critics (51) | Top Critics (16)

"24 Frames" is slow cinema at its slowest, and as meaningful as you want to make it. Above all, it breathes with the sensibility of an artist who saw beauty in people and places where most of us never thought to look.

The chief pleasure of 24 Frames is how it attunes you to appreciate any movement, whether it's snow falling, waves crashing, or birds pecking the earth.

24 Frames immediately communicates the power of the theater experience, in the way that so many of Kiarostami's movies can.

In the seconds and minutes around the taking of a photograph, Kiarostami reminds us, the world changes, but mostly in increments.

"24 Frames" can't help but be affecting because it is Kiarostami's final movie. But it's intellectually uninvolving, and its technical limitations prove frustrating.

How fitting that this lovely final film is one that could be enjoyed by fourth-graders as easily as the most knowledgeable of Kiarostami's admirers.
