This mysteriously beautiful romantic drama, filmed entirely in Japan, revolves around the brief encounter between an elderly professor and a sociology student who moonlights as a high-end escort. Eventually, night gives way to day and a tense standoff with the student’s insanely jealous boyfriend; but as usual in Kiarostami’s films, nothing is quite as it appears on the surface.
“Every shot – everything you see, and everything you don’t – imparts a disturbing and thrilling sense of discovery. ” – A. O. Scott , New York Times
“You emerge from ‘Like Someone In Love’ elated and slightly dazed. The movie’s sense of immutable desire resonates well after the lights have come up.” – Scott Foundas, The Village Voice
“A tantalizing mystery that leaves you contemplating its significance long after it ends.“- Eric Kohn, Indiewire
