We’re getting close to the movie event of te month and so the Cannes Film Festival has started to tease the film world with media from the films that will be at the festival. Thanks to Nippon Cinema we got the heads-up for some images and a trailer for Kiarostami’s follow up to Certified Copy, Like Someone in Love. The trailer looks similar to the one I posted… last month (so I’ll use it again) but the images are new. Mostly.
A young female student named Akiko (Rin Takanashi) works as a prostitute to pay off her univeisty fees. One of her clients is an elderly academic (Tadashi Okuno) who is fond of her. Soon a relationship develops between the two.
The cast includes Rin Takanashi who starred in Goth: Love of Death, Denden who stars in Cold Fish and Himizu and Ryo Kase who is in SPEC: The Movie which is hanging on in the Japanese charts. Kiarostami has previously won big at Cannes by taking the Palme d’Or for Taste of Cherry in 1997. Here are the pictures.
