Abbas Kiarostami's first film outside of Iran is the story of an art gallery owner, who after attended a lecture on authenticity and fakery in art, invites the speaker on a tour of her native Tuscan countryside. Initially mistaken for husband and wife, the pair decided to keep their act going throughout the day, playing the part of a long married couple. 

 "One of those films that's a joy to watch and even more of a joy to think about afterward. It's an amazing film that will stay with you for days, if not weeks." - Stephen Silver, The Trend 

"The Iranian-writer director Abbas Kiarostami has always been enthralled by the shifting planes of fantasy and reality. His latest film, Certified Copy, is his fullest expression of that entrancement." - Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
