“Like Someone In Love,” the latest film from director Abbas Kiarostami, has had a bumpy path to recognition. When it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last May, it garnered mostly mixed-to-negative reviews. Writing for The Guardian, Peter Bradshaw called it “frustrating” and stated that the film ends right when the drama gets interesting. Variety's Guy Lodge called it a “more austere and less intellectual” twin to Kiarostami’s previous film, “Certified Copy.”  So far, so not so good.
