An old man and a young woman meet in Tokyo. She knows nothing about him, he thinks he knows her. He welcomes her into his home, she offers him her body. But the web that is woven between them in the space of twenty-four hours bears no relation to the circumstances of their encounter. “Master filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami has ceaselessly explored the thin boundaries between fiction and “real life,” and the ways in which role-playing and masquerade can bleed into the real world - and even become commensurate with it. ...Like Someone in Love puts the theme of pretense right up front. Once again leaving his native Iran to shoot in a new environment - here the bustling world of Tokyo nightlife - Kiarostami weaves a story where the sum of deceptions might just equal truth itself.” (Dimitri Epides,TIFF)
