Like Someone in Love

Kiarostami: Life and Nothing More
(NR) Japan/France – 1 hr 49 min – with subtitles  
2012 · d. Abbas Kiarostami
Starring Rin Takanashi, Tadashi Okuno, Ryo Kase

Moonlighting as a sex worker, university student Akiko encounters an elderly widower who seems more interested in playing house than a physical liaison. The next day, roped into drama with Akiko’s suspicious boyfriend, the old man assumes the role of her grandfather, leading to unforeseen repercussions. This late-career film finds Kiarostami working with a master’s confidence, transposing his investigations of identity and impersonation from his native Iran to Tokyo.

Like Someone in Love will be introduced by Maurizio Giammarco, Ph.D.
