Fresh from the triumph of CERTIFIED COPY, master filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami travels even further afield from his native Iran for this mysteriously beautiful romantic drama.
LIKE SOMEONE IN LOVE revolves around the brief encounter between an elderly professor (81-year-old stage actor Tadashi Okuno) and a beautiful student (Rin Takanashi) who moonlights as a high-end escort.
Dispatched to the old man by her boss—one of the professor’s former students—the young woman finds her latest client is less interested in sex than in cooking her soup, talking and playing old records (one that gives the film its title). Eventually, night gives way to day and a tense standoff with the student’s way-too-possessive boyfriend (Ryo Kase).
As usual with Kiarostami, nothing is quite as it appears on the surface. Are these characters—who conjure in one another the specters of regret and roads not taken—meeting by chance, or is it fate? Is this love, or merely something like it?
