First Look: Kiarostami Follows up 'Certified Copy' with Japanese 'Like Someone in Love' (Video)

Abbas Kiarostami's follow-up to 2011 favorite "Certified Copy" is now called "Like Someone in Love." The teaser below offers a first look at what's in store from Iran's master auteur. The story, set in Japan, follows the odd relationship between a woman (Rin Takanashi) who pays her school fees by prostituting herself, and one of her clients, a brilliant elderly academic (Tadashi Okuno). Ella Fitzgerald provides the teaser's soundtrack singing the titular song. "Certified Copy" debuted at Cannes 2010, where Juliette Binoche won Best Actress for her role. Will Kiarostami bring French/Japanese co-production "Like Someone in Love" to Cannes?

Watch the trailer below:
