Orderly or Disorderly

By Abbas Kiarostami

Original title – Beh tartib ya bedoun-e tartib
International title – ORDERLY OR DISORDERLY
French title – Avec ou sans ordre


A sense of order is the necessary basis of any good social organisation. To illustrate this axiom, Kiarostami presents a series of paired scenes in which the same action is first shown in an organised way and then in an anarchic one. The film crew, however, finds it difficult to organise disorder.
