Like Someone in Love by Abbas Kiarostami
That song, by Ella Fitzgerald, is the song that opens my Sunday morning playlist. And though this film has nothing to do with the iconic singer, the underlying theme of a john becoming smitten with an escort is old hat and often comical. I’ve heard so many good things about this indie film, that I’ve added it to my to do list.
The basis of this film a young woman in Tokyo trying to balance life as a prostitute with a john whom she befriends, and her real boyfriend, who has no idea she solicits men for sex. All three parties seem to be in a highly dysfunctional romantic relationship. It sounds too amusing and implausible to miss. Catch this one while you can.
