Abbas Kiarostami's Like Someone in Love Trailer

"Whatever will be, will be." Sundance Selects has finally debuted an official US trailer for the new film from Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami, titled Like Someone in Love. This one is set in Tokyo, Japan and is a charming little awkward, quirky love story between a call girl, played by Rin Takanashi, and an elderly man named Watanabe Takashi, played by Tadashi Okuno. The film played at the Cannes (my review) and Toronto Film Festivals, and is a superb character study of two people from opposite ends. The trailer doesn't give away too much, but it does setup the characters and story. They use such beautiful music too, perfect.

Watch the official US trailer for Abbas Kiarostami's Like Someone in Love, originally from Apple:

Fresh from the triumph of his Tuscany-set Certified Copy, master Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami travels even further afield from his native Iran for this mysteriously beautiful romantic drama filmed entirely in Japan. Like Someone in Love revolves around the brief encounter between an elderly professor (the wonderful 81-year-old stage actor Tadashi Okuno, here playing his first leading role in a film) and a sociology student (Rin Takanashi) who moonlights as a high-end escort. This first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year (read my glowing review), and was eventually picked up by Sundance Selects. They're finally releasing Like Someone in Love in limited theaters starting February 15th this winter. Interested?
