    Like Someone in Love
    Celebrated Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami takes the helm for this richly textured drama set in Tokyo, and centered on the unusual relationship between an elderly professor and a pretty student moonlighting as a high-class call girl. Arriving at Takashi (Tadashi Okuno)'s home late one night, Akiko (Rin Takanashi) is surprised when her client shows more interest in cooking and conversation than he does in sex. The following morning, Takashi offers to drive Akiko to class. When the pair crosses paths with Akiko's intensely jealous boyfriend (Ryo Kase), they simply go along with his assumption that Takashi is Akiko's grandfather. Meanwhile, this slight deception begins to color Takashi and Akiko's future interactions while yielding some unexpected repercussions. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
