US director Martin Scorsese said Kiarostami was "a very special human being: quiet, elegant, modest, articulate and quite observant.
"He was a true gentleman and, truly, one of our great artists.''

Filmmaker Martin Scorsese said some people referred to Mr. Kiarostami’s pictures as minimalist, but he thought it was the opposite. Every scene in “Taste of Cherry” and “Where is the Friend’s Home?” are overflowing with beauty and surprise, he said.

“I got to know Abbas over the last 10 or 15 years,” he said. “He was a very special human being: quiet, elegant, modest, articulate and quite observant. I don’t think he missed anything. Our paths crossed too seldom, and I was always glad when they did. He was a true gentleman and, truly, one of our great artists.”
