Worth Watching: Official Trailer for Juliette Binoche's 'Certified Copy'
IFC Films recently debuted an official US trailer on Apple for Abbas Kiarostami's new film Certified Copy, starring the lovely Oscar winning French actress Juliette Binoche, as well as William Shimell as James Miller. This romantic drama premiered in Cannes last year to rave reviews, although I didn't personally see it while I was there. It's a very charming introduction to the film, so I highly suggested watching the trailer. The film has a solid B+ on criticWire, with stellar reviews like this from Guy Lodge calling it a "gorgeous, funny, subtly probing film [that] promises further revelations and interpretations on a repeat viewing."

In Tuscany to promote a book, an English writer meets a French woman who leads him to a small village.
Certified Copy, aka Copie Conforme in French, is both written and directed by the beloved, award-winning Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami, of films like Where is the Friend's Home?, Through the Olive Trees, Taste of Cherry, The Wind Will Carry Us, Five Dedicated to Ozu, Roads of Kiarostami and Shirin. This first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year and is being distributed by IFC Films in the US. They will be bringing Certified Copy to limited theaters starting March 11th and also VOD on March 23rd. Thoughts?
This looks romantic and hopeful, a sort-of "Before Sunset" in Tuscany. I'll be seeing it as soon as it's in a theater near me 🙂

I agree, more Before Sunrise/Sunset is needed but this may fit the bill nicely till then.

think you'll enjoy it. it's far more ambiguous than the relatively conventional set-up described in the trailer, and all the better for it. and Binoche rarely if ever puts a foot wrong in general, but she's luminous in this.

Spending time with Juliette Binoche is always wonderful. I'm there.

Lovely trailer, it kind of looks a bit like Cairo Time. I thought for a second there the actor was David Strathairn, the resemblance is uncanny.
