Like Someone In Love

One our our 10 Films Worth Tracking Down In Theaters In FebruaryAbbas Kiarostami's "Like Someone In Love" is a piece of intelligent cinema, which given the options currently at the multiplex, is a rarity. So if you're looking for something with a bit more substance this month, this would be a good option. And with the movie set to open in limited release soon, we've got an exclusive clip from the movie to give you a little look at what the Iranian filmmaker has cooked up this time around.

Largely a two-hander, the film centers on Rin Takanashi and Tadashi Okuno, the former a young escort and the latter an elderly professor, with the pair striking up an usual friendship that takes them to unexpected places over a couple of days. In this scene, we see a few moments from their initial meeting at his apartment as they both share anecodotes around a painting on his wall. It's a good example of the slow burn approach Kiarostami employs and his unhurried pace, with much more going on beneath the surface.

"Like Someone In Love" opens on February 15th. Watch below.
