Hello, how is your week? Mine was going very well until yesterday, I went to bed perfectly fine and woke up with terrible lower back pain. How does that happen? What could I possibly have been doing in my sleep to cripple myself? A mystery to be sure.
Speaking of mysteries, have you seen the movie Certified Copy? It is an interesting, confusing film directed by Iranian film director Abbas Kiarostami, which stars Juliette Binoche and opera star, William Shimell.
Set in Tuscany the movie tells the story of author James Miller, who wrote a book called “Certified Copy”, and is in Italy speaking about his book. At a lecture he is giving, Juliette Binoche refereed to as Elle/She offers to show him around the city. He takes her up on the offer and they spend a day together in a little Italian village where newlyweds visit so that they will have long and prosperous marriage.
I don’t want to tell you more of the movie because frankly I wouldn’t even know what or how to explain it. The story is not straight forward and for me it was a bit confusing, In fact the director Abbas Kiarostami said in an interview that if five people see the movie they will have five interpretations of what it is about.
Have you seen it? Can you give me your interpretation because I would love to know what other people thought it was about.
Have you seen any good movies? I am always open to suggestions.
I hope you have a great day! Enjoy!
