As it turns out, it's the first, not the last, word of the title that's key to this droll, elegant but faintly trying study in emotional artifice.
July 29, 2013
There's some artful fiddling with plot expectations, but the film's evident self-regard makes this a rather undergraduate provocation.

Plays out as a city-mouse rejoinder to the rustic, open-air daydream of Certified Copy, a snarl of thorny free jazz to that film's graceful aria.

No filmmaker is above making errors of judgment. Kiarostami makes a big one.

June 21, 2013
A frustratingly inscrutable film that fails to engage.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 20, 2013
Gnomic, anfractuous, inconsequential.

The more you delve, the more resonance you find; the problem is that Kiarostami fails to embed the film's visual, aural and symbolic games in a narrative that satisfies on the level of story and character.

Maybe it all serves a purpose, but a movie about empty people doesn't necessarily have to feel empty itself.

I know there's something happening here, but I don't know what it is.

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.
February 12, 2013
The director has made disappointing films before-a more generous word might be transitional-but never one so slight.

The problem with "Like Someone in Love" is that, while we can see the world through their eyes, we rarely access how they think or feel about it.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
March 8, 2013
There are some limited rewards in seeing the consequences and complexities that result from the characters' deceptions and assumed roles, but in the end the film is unsatisfying.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

There are some interesting ideas and sympathetic performances in a superbly shot and fascinatingly controlled exercise. There is potential. But the curtain comes down with an arbitrary crash just as the drama was becoming interesting.

Like Someone in Love is directed imaginatively, is impressively acted, and is quite disappointing -- not even successful in its own way.
March 14, 2013
"Like Someone in Love" meanders with intention toward a bittersweet resolution, but then pulls the rug out from under you in a cruelly ambiguous shot.

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.
February 2, 2017
A wonderful celebration of what it's like to be in love.
March 15, 2013
Like Someone in Love won't break your heart while you're watching it. That will happen two or three days later, while you're sitting at a stoplight or in the checkout line at the grocery store.
