The seduction scene in Abbas Kiarostami’s Like Someone In Love

Recently watching Abbas Kiarostami’s plaintive inter-generational film Like Someone In Love, I was struck by the power of his carefully managed and outwardly subtle seduction scene between Rin Takanashi and Tadashi Okuno.

I found this even more notable as so much of Abbas Kiarostami’s work is conversationally driven but this—one of his most powerful scenes—was shot in silence.
