Toward the end of Like Someone in Love, an elderly academic hears word that the first printing of his book is missing a sentence. As viewers of an Abbas Kiarostami film, we know the feeling. Anyone who’s seen a movie by the titan of Iranian cinema has felt, at one point or another, like a key scene or line of dialogue — one that’d make the whole thing make more sense — just up and disappeared. Kiarostami has said he strives to make “incomplete” films, ones that force us viewers to find (or create) the missing puzzle pieces. Few of his films have ever felt as incomplete as Like Someone in Love.
