" many ways the most beautiful and powerful Iranian film I've seen." - Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

This film is currently out-of-print.

Life and Nothing More investigates the aftermath of a devastating 1990 earthquake which killed some 50,000 people in norhtern Iran. This region provided the setting for Abbas Kiarostami's award-winning Where Is the Friend's Home?

Kiarostami's search for the two young actors who played central roles in that film becomes the dramatic source of this film as a father and son travel to Quoker, the hometown of the two boys, and along the way meet quake survivors who desperately and valiantly work to reconstruct their lives.
