LIKE SOMEONE IN LOVE - SpotlightAsia!

119 min | NR
Master filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami travels even further afield from his native Iran for this mysterious, beautiful romantic drama filmed entirely in Japan. LIKE SOMEONE IN LOVE revolves around the brief encounter between an elderly professor and a sociology student (Rin Takanashi) who moonlights as a high–end escort. Dispatched to the old man by her boss, the young woman finds her latest client less interested in sex than in cooking for her, talking, and playing old Ella Fitzgerald records. Eventually, night gives way to day and a tense standoff with the studentís insanely jealous boyfriend (Ryo Kase), but nothing is quite as it appears on the surface.
