Nick O (nl) wrote: Every bit as sexy, weird, haunting, enchanting, gorgeous and hypnotic as Abbas Kiarostami's last film, "Certified Copy", "Like Someone in Love" is a painting, a work of art -- you look closer and closer, you step away from it and come back, you ask questions, different perspectives and opinions. And sometimes, man, there's just nothing there. Kiarostami tries you in that. It's there in the lovely and wandering stares of beautiful college student/call girl Akiko (Rin Takanashi) and her elderly client Takashi (Tadashi Okuno). Even more transfixing and melancholy are the dashboard shots from inside Akiko's taxi or Takashi's car as either/or travels from the Tokyo city to its suburbs, taken from the neon illumination of the city's peopled squares to the neighborly intimacy of its outskirts with a romantic longing, that certain emptiness of wanting to love something or someone so badly and missing everything that isn't in front of you. The ending is sudden, but it perfectly fits the rest of the movie's puzzle of cold, insinuated meaning. (81/100)

Mark A (gb) wrote: This was a lovely film that dealt with choices and how sometimes the very act of choosing causes pain no matter which choice one makes. The two lead actors, Vincent Lindon (Jean) and Sandrine Kiberlain (Veronique) gave us characters who conveyed their feelings with few words. There were silences that in another context might have been uncomfortable, but here felt completely natural because of the emotional presence of these two fine actors. The pace is slow, and does seem to drag at times, but the lovely scenery and the moral dilemma faced by these star-crossed lovers helps to assuage the languor one feels at times. Aure Atika plays Jean's wife (Anne-Marie), and her eyes tell us that she knows something is not quite right, but in true European fashion, rather than confront, she waits patiently for Jean to sort out his feelings. This is not a simple story. This seems like real people dealing with real moral choices and one feels that strong bonds are being tested. Those bonds that survive may thereby be stronger for the testing.

Emily Blunt is absolutely perfect as the crafty free-spirited kleptomaniac. It was a treat to watch her strutting in an array of vivacious, gorgeous party dresses. This is my favorite Blunt's role to date. Rupert Grint, a joy to watch after the Potter saga, he has a lot more to offer audiences than magic. Everett makes a delicious cad. His comedic timing is impeccable. I would pay to see Bill Nighy in anything. Taking on the role of a dry and droll assassin was plain brilliant, whose emotional signature is rationality and precision. Circumstances find him swept up in the tidal wave of chaos upon meeting his latest assignment. Even the dourest expression could dissolve me in fits of laughter. English comedies really do have a style of their own. Finally a witty and satisfying comedy that could kill you with so much laughter without all that fart and barf jokes that Hollywood specializes.

Justin B (br) wrote: Dreadful holiday comedy with no idea of the message it's trying to convey with attempts at black comedy that clash with the forced sentimentality of the whole affair. Everything feels forced, everything feels calculated.

Nathalie D (ag) wrote: It was fun to see all the different characters' personalities compliment each other, but it was still kind of a weak character study. Could use a bit more depth, resolution, something....

Dominic L (us) wrote: An ambitious film with a good premise. it falls short though due to stilted performances and uninspired plot twists.

Grace B (de) wrote: Going into this, I thought it was a real event.(though I did consider it odd I had never heard of it) and totally bought it. The ending, with it's realism, made me cry from shock. I thought those people were really dead. I have to give a film that can do that an A+

Lee M (us) wrote: Fanciful subtlety is inventively explored in this remarkably ambitious film from small-screen director Gavin Millar, in his only foray into big-screen cinema.

JamesMasaki R (br) wrote: Von Sternberg directs a love story, about a tattooed up dirty old dock worker, and a depressed socialite. At the time it was very unusual to see such anti-Hollywood looks and non-glamour on the screen, especially for a love story. Very well directed, and also well acted with powerful performances by Bancroft and Compson in the lead roles.

Leon B (es) wrote: Review:What a crazy film! I quite enjoyed this film because I didn't have a clue were it was going so every scene was a surprise. The director mixed comedy and thriller together quite well and I'm surprised that it wasn't bigger than it was. To cut a long story short, it's about a successful business man who cheats on his wife with the new shop assistant who gets pregnant for him. She then blackmails him for money but the domineering wife doesn't have none of it. She ends up taking matters into her own hands while the husband does everything that she tells him, out of guilt. There's loads of other elements to the storyline but I don't want to spoil it for you. Katherine Heigl plays the psychopathic wife who has there life in order and doesn't want to spoil her perfect suburban family values. She played role extremely well alongside Patrick Wilson who really doesn't have a say in any aspect of there life. Its a very well written storyline which really works, from a shocking point of view and the different characters all bring a different flavour to the project. It just shows that it not always the man that is controlling and domineering in a relationship! Enjoyable!Round-Up:Katherine Heigl usually stars in romantic comedy, like Knocked Up, The Ugly Truth and Life As We Know It but in this movie she isn't playing the sweet and innocent person who is gullible and struggling to find love. For once, she has everything that she wants out of life and she won't let anyone come and destroy her perfect little world. I really don't know how she was able to keep a straight face through some of the scenes because her reactions to certain situation were shocking and quite funny. Patrick Wilson was like a little puppy dog all the way through the film, doing exactly what his owner was telling him to do but you can see that there is something in the back of his mind that is telling him that his wife is totally nuts. Anyway, I'm sure that people will find something to laugh about in this movie but it might be another film that goes under the radar because it didn't blow up at the box office.I recommend this movie to people who are into their comedy/drama/thrillers about a perfect couple whose life's completely change when the husband has an affair with a work colleague. 6/10
