Like Someone In Love

Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami (Taste of Cherry, Certified Copy) hops over to Japan to peep in the windows of mysterious college gal Akiko (Takanashi Rin) who's secretly working as an escort. Her client for the night is elderly professor Takashi (Okuno Tadashi), who doesn't seem very interested in sex. But this job soon puts her at odds with her overprotective fiancé (Kase Ryo). The film is not very forthcoming, spilling little information about its characters or plot. This leaves viewers more or less on their own to fill in background and other details. It's a beautiful, patiently observed character study, but way too slow for many viewers. FULL REVIEW: Minimalist drama finds Iranian master Abbas Kiarostami peeping on Tokyo trio by Devin D. O’Leary (3/28/2013). 109 minutes
