Nader is alarmed to see a red volkswagen rolling backwards towards his own beloved yellow one. But when Leila (played by Leila Hatami) steps out, it’s love at first sight. There’s just one problem. He’s an inveterate chain smoker from advertising and she’s a perfume tester, so there’s a condition attached to marriage. He has to quit smoking. This is problematical for him as he believes his creativity is inextricably connected with his smoking. This charming and gently humorous film is based on an idea by Kiarostami.
