"Though the great Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami is sometimes mistaken for a social realist, he's always been a trickster at heart, as cunning in his way as a writer such as Vladimir Nabokov. This companion piece to his ersatz European art movie Certified Copy again puts the notion of fakery front and centre: the film is a prism that can be examined from many angles, even if the plot barely qualifies as anecdotal. Akiko (Rin Takanashi), a pretty, young sociology student who moonlights as an escort, is asked to spend an evening with Takashi (Tadashi Okuno), a courtly professor living in the suburbs of Tokyo. Whether or not Like Someone in Love is ultimately ''about'' Japan, it pays homage to the Japanese tradition of art that relies on implication. Voices are detached from their owners and images are visible only as reflections, while truth, if it exists at all, remains offscreen." JW
