Internationally revered Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami has created some of the most inventive and transcendent cinema of the past thirty years, and Close-up is his most radical, brilliant work. This fiction-documentary hybrid uses a sensational real-life event--the arrest of a young man on charges that he fraudulently impersonated the well-known filmmaker Mohsen Makhmalbaf--as the basis for a stunning, multilayered investigation into movies, identity, artistic creation, and existence, in which the real people from the case play themselves. With its universal themes and fascinating narrative knots, Close-up has resonated with viewers around the world

Hussein is a pizza deliveryman in Tehran. Wounded in the Iraq-Iran war, he suffers from an unnamed illness for which he takes "medication." When not delivering pizza, he and his naïve, talkative friend Ali are petty thieves. Hussein is engaged to Ali's sister. His job brings him repeatedly to the doorways of Tehran's well-heeled, Westernized citizens, who treat him as though he were invisible. Hussein is upset by being treated like a second-class citizen, especially after bravely serving in the war. After being turned away by the owner of a posh jewelry story, and then treated with coldness and condescension on a return visit, Hussein decides that the humiliation is not to be borne.

Like someone in love by Abbas Kiarostami( Visual )

23 editions published between 2012 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Master filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami's mysteriously beautiful romantic drama, filmed entirely in Japan.. LIKE SOMONE IN LOVE revolves around the brief encounter between an elderly professor (the wonderful 81-year-old stage actor Tadashi Okuno, here playing his first leading role in a film) and a sociology student (Rin Takanashi) who moonlights as a high-end escort. Dispatched to the old man by her boss—one of the professor’s former students—the young woman finds her latest client less interested in sex than in cooking her soup, talking, and playing old Ella Fitzgerald records (like the one that gives the film its allusive title). Eventually, night gives way to day and a tense standoff with the student’s insanely jealous boyfriend (Ryō Kase); but as usual in Kiarostami, nothing is quite as it appears on the surface. Are these characters—who conjure in one another the specters of regret and roads not taken—meeting by chance, or is it fate? Is this love, or merely something like it?. Nominated for the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Nominated for Best Director, Best Supporting Actor (Ryo Kase), and Best Cinematographer at the Asian Film Awards.. "A wonderful celebration of what it's like to be in love." - Joseph Aberl, Film Inquiry. "I was enraptured by Like Someone in Love, taken with a visual intelligence and thoughtfulness we seldom see onscreen." - Sean Burns, Philadelphia Weekly
