The great Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami (Close-up) travels to Tuscany for a luminous and provocative romance in which nothing is as it appears. What seems at first to be a straightforward tale of two people-played by Oscar-winning actress Juliette Binoche (Blue) and opera singer William Shimell-getting to know each other over the course of an afternoon gradually reveals itself as something richer, stranger, and trickier: a mind-bending reflection on authenticity, in art as well as in relationships. Both cerebrally and emotionally engaging, CERTIFIED COPY (Copie conforme) reminds us that love itself is an enigma.

Academy Award-winner Juliette Binoche gives one of the finest performances of her career (for which she won the best actress award at Cannes) in CERTIFIED COPY, the first European film from Abbas Kiarostami (TASTE OF CHERRY). The film is a playful and provocative romance set against the lush, golden landscapes of Tuscany, a captivating story of a couple's apparent chance meeting and a masterful game of hide and seek exploring the nature of love, marriage and art.
