A gallery owner (Juliette Binoche, named Best Actress at Cannes) invites an accomplished author (William Shimell) on a drive with her to a picturesque Italian town. Their banter about the difference between artistic originals and copies is filled with flirtation, but the nature of their relationship becomes ambiguous when an honest misunderstanding leads to them feigning a marriage. Iranian visionary Abbas Kiarostami directs this meditation on authenticity and artifice.
