Austin Film Society presents: Certified Copy

Iranian filmmaker-in-exile, Abbas Kiarostami, has created a haunting film about a French woman (played by Juliette Binoche) living in Tuscany with her young son. After meeting a British author at his lecture, she spends the day with him in the village of Lucignano – looking at art and copies of masterpieces, drinking wine, walking, and eventually shifting into the roles of husband and wife. The transition is so deftly accomplished that we are left wondering if they are truly a couple married for 15 years or strangers--certified copies--of such a couple.

This is not the power shift of Bergman’s Persona, but is a similarly amazing film about identity and relations.
