Shirin (Abbas Kiarostami, 2008)

Beautiful study in cinematic rhythm and identification, chock full of reflexivity (we only follow the narrative of the women's identification with the characters in the film they are, supposedly, watching by identifying with them ourselves...). It might have been nice to have one or two audience members who weren't emotionally overwhelmed by the film, but that's my only serious quibble.
