Like Someone in Love

Iranian master Abbas Kiarostami confounds expectations again with this Japanese drama of mistaken identity – which nods towards Ozu’s classic Tokyo Story but takes its title from an American jazz standard.

‘Like’ is the key word here, since the protagonist is a young woman who appears a regular student/grand-daughter/girlfriend depending on the circumstances, but is actually moonlighting as a call girl, where one of her clients is, outwardly, a distinguished professor and widower, but obviously with secrets to hide.

I´ll be beside the information desk from 15:45. My phone number is[masked] (Oscar). Movie starts at 16:20. We can go for a drink after the movie.

    The movie was leading us slowly through details of the characters' in 48 hours and just when I started to understand them and the build-up got exciting, it ended abruptly! I guess I wanted a bit more . . .

    An interesting take on Japanese culture, a movie with a twist where for majority of time focus is not on the main subject but in the end Someone In Love makes his bold statement
