Abbas Kiarostami spent his incomparable career exploring the spaces that separate illusion from reality and the simulated from the authentic. At first glance, his extraordinary and sly Like Someone in Love, which finds the Iranian director in Tokyo, may appear to be among his most straightforward films. Yet, with this simple story of the growing bond between a young student and part-time call girl and a grandfatherly client, Kiarostami constructs an enigmatic but crystalline investigation of affection and desire as complex as his masterful Close-up and Certified Copy, owing to the film's remarkable examination of the workings of the mercurial human heart.
