Critic Reviews for Under the Olive Trees (Zire darakhatan zeyton) (Through the Olive Trees)
On a purely intellectual level, it is fascinating film in relation to the others in the trilogy, but viewed on its own, it doesn't have much to offer.
Warm, humane, and wryly funny, a bemused reverie on love and romance in an ever-evolving Iran.
Patient and observant, with a brilliant awareness of various layers of creation and creativity, it's a great film.
Scouring the community for actors, they inadvertently cast starcrossed youths Hossein and Tahereh as the leads. Their relationship lends a new level of reality that only undermines the film-within-a-film's carefully contrived verisimilitude.
... a marvelous glimpse into the working methods of Kiarostami, but that becomes merely one of the many layers of "reality" in this film.
Audience Reviews for Under the Olive Trees (Zire darakhatan zeyton) (Through the Olive Trees)
Kiarostami continues to prove us that he is a genius in the way he interweaves reality and fiction, and even if this third Koker film may feel a bit redundant when placed side-by-side with the other two, there is something absolutely unique about what he is trying to do here.
my least favorite of the trilogy is still great. the various layers, in jokes and reference to the previous films have become staggering by this time so don't approach without preparation (watching the other two films in the series)
Expressive and staggeringly touching.The process of film-making and the various interactions by the members/crew,job and personal issues altogether.A brilliant finale,worthwhile as one of 90's magnificent finales.
