Abbas Kiarostami’s ‘Like Somebody in Love’ Teaser Trailer
Abbas Kiarostami received high critical praise for his last film Certified Copy (one of my favorites from 2011). Now he has a new film to get excited about. Like Somebody in Love is a Japanese-language romantic drama starring Rin Takanashi. According to Anomalous Material (via The Playlist) Rin Takanashi stars as a young Japanese woman who works as a prostitute to pay for her college education and the movie follows her relationship with a brilliant, elderly professor (Tadashi Akuno) who also happens to be one of her clients.
Below is a teaser trailer and some screenshots. Like Somebody in Love doesn’t have a release date yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see it at Cannes this year.
