LIKE SOMEONE IN LOVE

[ライク・サムワン・イン・ラブ]
Abbas Kiarostami's second feature made outside of Iran takes place in Tokyo. Akiko (Rin Takanashi), a college student moonlighting as a prostitute, is sent to the apartment of Takashi (Tadashi Okuno), an elderly gentleman who just wants to spend the night talking. The next morning, when he drops her off at her university, Akiko's boyfriend mistakes Takashi for her grandfather, and the old man elects not to correct him. Like its Italian-set predecessor CERTIFIED COPY, LIKE SOMEONE IN LOVE is about people who reinvent their identities for mysterious reasons. And as in the ballad from which it takes its title, each character is suffused with a longing that seeks fulfillment in the other but with possibly dire consequences. "Every shot — everything you see, and everything you don't — imparts a disturbing and thrilling sense of discovery." – A.O. Scott, The New York Times. (Note courtesy of Freer|Sackler.)
