Iranian director commends WSWS film review

20 May 1998

Dear Mr. Walsh:

I received the piece that you wrote about Taste of Cherry. I believe that critics create a new piece of art by looking at another piece. That is what you have done in writing about Taste of Cherry. I really enjoyed reading it and I want to thank you for it.

Abbas Kiarostami
