Today is a good day to be an Abbas Kiarostami fan. Early this morning, a gorgeous trailer dropped for this next flim “Like Someone In Love” — click here in case you missed it — and now, a few new images from the movie have arrived via Paris Match to give you a further look at the film that is a strong contender to hit Cannes.
Starring Rin Takanashi, Tadashi Akuno and Ryo Kase (“Letters From Iwo Jima,” “Restless“), this latest effort from the Iranian filmmaker finds him traveling to Japan, to tell the story of a young woman who finances her studies through prostitution and her relationship with a brilliant, elderly academic who is also one of her clients. The film is said to be a continuation (at least thematically, we’re guessing) of “Certified Copy,” and it looks like yet another fascinating direction for the filmmaker.
We’ll know in a couple weeks if the “Like Someone In Love” will make it to the Croisette, but until then, here are a couple of images to hold you over.
