On a highway at night, a car driven by Doctor Kaveh Nariman sideswipes a motor scooter carrying an entire family. No one is visibly injured, but the doctor tells the father to have 8-year-old Amir Ali checked for a possible concussion. When the boy's name appears on the doctor's autopsy list a short time later, this tautly filmed drama explores the nuances of conscience and culpability in a society that, despite its many rules, is largely left to decipher these realms on a person-by-person basis. With superb performances by all the leads, in particular Navid Mohammadzadeh (who won the Venice Film Festival prize) as the guilt-tormented father, Moosa, and Amir Agha'ee as Dr. Nariman, the film is in the tradition of Iran's finest director, Abbas Kiarostami, in implying that children are the unambiguous responsibility of us all.—Judy Bloch

In Persian with English subtitles
