The Traveler

The first feature (1974) of Iranian master Abbas Kiarostami follows the determination of a boy in a village to attend a soccer match in Tehran, a venture that involves swiping or scamming money from various sources and in effect running away from home. The comparison many have made between between this touchingly nonjudgmental and often comic short feature and The 400 Blows isn't far off, and Kiarostami's warm and poetic feeling for children and his flair for both storytelling and for documentarylike detail are already fully in place. In Persian with subtitles.
