(JAPANESE WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES)
Like Someone in Love, named after Ella Fitzgerald’s jazz standard, is a droll, elegant and playful film preoccupied with identities mistaken and assumed, laced with references to the films of Yasujirō Ozu. Akiko, a pretty and slightly distant sociology student works nights as a high-class escort. Instead of studying for her exams and meeting her grandmother, she reluctantly goes to the house of her latest client, the retired sociology professor Takashi. Next morning, she allows him to give her a ride to university where they cross paths with her volatile boyfriend, Noriaki who assumes that the kind old man is Akiko's grandfather. An odd role-playing routine begins, until the hoax is discovered.
