Hmmm. Twenty-somethings can't be all that bad. Kiarostami's movies can be a challenge to the casual movie-goer, so I imagine that there are a lot of thirty-, forty-, fifty-somethings who would be baffled or irritated by them, not just twenty-somethings. It doesn't have as much to do with age as it does with how open you are to innovation and originality. Allie, if you have any crazed film buffs in your group, I don't think you could do better than to check out Kiarostami. My favourites are CLOSE-UP and LIFE AND NOTHING MORE... THE TASTE OF CHERRY is a bit more difficult, I think. That one screwed my head around quite a bit. There's also Mohsen Makhmalbaf (he did GABBEH), who is one of the more popular directors in Iran. One of his best would probably be A MOMENT OF INNOCENCE, but my favourite is THE APPLE, a film based on a true story about twin girls whose father has kept them locked inside the house since birth. Social workers come to free the girls and the film is about their first discovery of the world outside their courtyard. Makhmalbaf worked on THE APPLE, but it was actually directed by his 18-year-old (!) daughter, Samira. It's a gentle, even-handed exploration and criticism of some aspects of Iranian society and it's brilliant. Twenty-somethings are not only watching these films, they're friggin' directing them! Good luck and apologies for the long ramble.
