About Like Someone in Love

Year Released:
Master filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami travels far from his native Iran for this mysteriously beautiful romantic drama filmed entirely in Japan. Like Someone in Love revolves around the brief encounter between an elderly professor, and a student 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 client less interested in sex than in cooking her soup, talking, and playing Ella Fitzgerald records. Eventually, night gives way to day and a tense standoff with the student’s insanely jealous boyfriend; but as usual in Kiarostami, nothing is quite as it appears. (2K DCP presentation)

Director Abbas Kiarostami is scheduled to be present.
