This was really boring. Not to mention the synopsis is totally inaccurate, Akiko is not surprised to find the client is an elderly academic, she never asks him anything and immediately crawls into bed and falls asleep. The story line seems to have been cobbled together by some junior high kids.

Chicago Sun-Times
The film's craziest, most easily mocked character emerges as the one most fully alive. Old Kiarostami, master of paradoxes, is set in his ways, but his ways are never set. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
Newcomers may be disappointed by such a slender effort, but fans of revered Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami will find plenty to appreciate in his observant followup to 2010’s acclaimed “Certified Copy.” Full Review
Eric Kohn
While not his best work, Like Someone in Love is a nimble expression of Kiarostami's appeal: He remains one of the few directors capable of pulling you into a narrative and making you question its motives at every turn. Full Review
Farran Smith Nehme
New York Post
If Like Someone in Love frustrates, it also has ineffable grace in the framing of Kiarostami’s long, languid shots, the changes he captures in the light, and the way the actors’ smallest movements become fascinating. This enigmatic study of identities built on social deceit offers more than easy answers ever could. Full Review
Jesse Cataldo
Slant Magazine
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. Full Review
