Academy Award(R)-winner Juliette Binoche gives one of the finest performances of her career (for which she won the best actress award at Cannes) in CERTIFIED COPY, the first European film from Abbas Kiarostami (TASTE OF CHERRY). The film is a playful and provocative romance set against the lush, golden landscapes of Tuscany, a captivating story of a couple's apparent chance meeting and a masterful game of hide and seek exploring the nature of love, marriage and art. Andrew O'Hehir of Salon says, CERTIFIED COPY is "an elegant, wistful and picturesque tale of two ships passing in the Tuscan sunlight."
