Through The Olive Trees

Through The Olive Trees

Synopsis

Director Abbas Kiarostami is celebrated internationally as one of the most important film makers at work today. Deeply humanistic and capturing the great beauty of the Iranian landscape, Through The Olive Trees is a simple story of forbidden love. When a film crew arrives in an earth-quake-devastated village to shoot a film, Hossein, a young, homeless and illiterate bricklayer, is given a small role and is amazed to find himself cast as the newlywed husband of the girl he adores, the sulky Tehereh.
