In Tokyo, sociology student, Akiko, moonlights as a high-end prostitute. Her jealous boyfriend, Noriaki, is suspicious, but does not know about her work. One night, she is assigned to Takashi, an elderly former university professor who is more interested in making her dinner than having sex. In this film, Kiarostami presents indefinite people with indefinite motivations and desires. 'Like Someone in Love' is a bracing slap to the face of not just these characters who have been slumming, pretending and withholding, but to many of us who might be going through life on some kind of autopilot.
