While the film doesn't have the complex ambiguity and thematic richness of its predecessor, it is a charming and unique addition to the Kiarostami canon.

Favouring long, oblique takes, this is 'slow cinema' so slow that, an hour or so in, even one of its protagonists nods off.

Tokyo, the ultimate modern metropolis, with its neon-lit commercial graffiti and buildings that look like a pastiche of everywhere and nowhere, is perfect for Kiarostami's story of closeness between strangers.

A wonderful celebration of what it's like to be in love.

There's a kind of purity in the melancholy of Takashi, a lonely old man who hires a hooker and ends up with a lost young woman who stirs paternal feelings...

I was enraptured by Like Someone in Love, taken with a visual intelligence and thoughtfulness we seldom see onscreen. It's one hell of a riff.

Kiarostami still possesses a remarkable knack for crafting vivid supporting characters from just a few details.

There's some artful fiddling with plot expectations, but the film's evident self-regard makes this a rather undergraduate provocation.

Like Someone in Love... is like a puzzle that takes an eternity to complete and yet still somehow contains too few pieces to be taxing.
June 22, 2013
As an exercise in conveying place, mood and human foible, this is consistently intriguing.

[Kiarostami] almost throws up something magical, here.

This is an intriguing, elliptical affair, the emphasis on reflective surfaces (and off-screen voices) reminding us that we are only ever seeing an opaque refraction of the whole picture.
June 21, 2013
The septuagenarian's most playful tendencies have been liberated and he has started to make films that look like the work of a younger director raised on vintage Kiarostami.

A frustratingly inscrutable film that fails to engage.

[A] beautiful, subtly tender and narratively slight film ...

Gnomic, anfractuous, inconsequential.

Like the best dreams always do, it ends with a jolt, but its ideas and images linger like dust in sunlight.
