Storyline

What happens in the moments before and after a photograph is taken? 24 Frames answers this question and unites the two artistic languages Kiarostami dedicated his life to. Melancholic and joyous, serious and mischievous, it's a refined meditation on the passage of time and on the fragility of existence - themes central to the cinema of this revered Iranian director.

Sheer waste of time!
20 March 2019 | by nitejoker6See all my reviews

Seconds before and after would have been good enough. It might then have been a great short film of 12-13 minutes. As it is, impossible to sit through and monumental waste of time.
