Editorial Reviews

Nightwatch director Ole Bornedal returns to quicken the pulse of thriller fans with a genre-bending tale of a crime scene photographer whose life takes a dramatic and unexpected turn in this “nervy and stylish modern film noir” (Los Angeles Times).

After Jonas (Anders W. Berthelsen) causes a car accident that leaves Julia (Rebecka Hemse), a mysterious stranger, crippled with amnesia, he’s compelled to visit her in the hospital. But when Julia’s family mistakes him for her boyfriend, Jonas decides to play along. Unwilling to lose Julia and his new identity, Jonas does whatever it takes to keep the deception going. Until the day her memories return.

Format: DVD
The filming, the score, the performances - all make for a great film that I find difficult to fully explain. A sordid tale of love, deception, betrayal, and above all: amnesia. Or maybe it is all about temporary madness, temporary passion and telling the truth. The Amazon description tells it best without revealing too much. There are so many twists and plot turns, that I thought it would become unbelievable, but they kept writing this piece in ways to make it beautiful, fun, terrifying and altogether enjoyable.

An unknown cast (here in America) fills all the requirements to keep this Danish thriller alive, but especially that of supporting player Dejan Cukic, he had a great screen presence as the police officer/best buddy. What struck me as most memorable though, was the filming and quality of effects. The crash sequence towards the beginning rivals any non-cgi event I have seen.

The story follows a married CSI-type police employee as he ventures into the realm of an amnesia stricken woman with a mysterious background. Through the course of events, both sensual and saddening at the same time, everyone's lives that are touched by the main character's faulty decisions, begin to unravel and feel the consequences.

This is bare bones DVD, but the sound and picture quality are good. The DVD cover art shows way too much of the final scenes, but in fairness they do show the ending of the film as the opening salvo of love stories. If it were rated it would be R for nudity, sexual content, language and violence.

Jonas is a photographer who takes snapshots of corpse, is married, and father of two. His life takes another turn when he causes a car accident that leaves a woman a mysterious stranger. Feeling that he owes the woman and her family a debt of gratitude, he plays her abusive boyfriend Sebastian. He has fooled Julia's family into thinking that he is the one for her. They are unaware of who he is, or that of her real boyfriend. Jonas impresses her family immediately because of his affection for their daughter. All the while, his relationship with his wife slowly disintegrates.
Just Another Love Story, although a psychological thriller, illustrates what is seen isn't always real. There are dark patches that humans fail to examine until tragedy strikes. For Julia, it took a loss of vision to know had been gone what needed to be restored. Jonas was trying to put the pieces of her puzzle together but at a cost to his marriage and work. He, too, failed to see that what he was doing would hurt Julia's family. Just Another Love Story keeps the viewer at the edge of one's seat to see what happens next and keeps them guessing.

"Beautiful girl and the unsolved mystery - good starting point for a noir film", mentions to the everyman Jonas, husband and father, the hero of "Just another love story", one of his friends, urging him to think twice before immersing into that mystery. And soon, the movie turns out a thriller in the Hitchcock's and Coen Brothers’ traditions with the main character taking the sudden choices in order to run from the stalled relationship that lost its initial appeal, from unfulfilling job, from life that leads nowhere to a romantic passionate love and exciting new possibilities.

Derivative - that's the word that majority of nay-sayers use when commenting on this film. But its writer/director Ole Bornedal does not hide throughout the picture that he has made a noir film, or, rather, Neo-noir: Danish style that characterizes by postmodernist self-reflection and consciously refers to the works of past and present. There are all ingredients here you would expect in a noir film: twists, turns, wrong or questionable choices the main character takes and where they would lead him. There are mysterious young woman with a dark past and a sinister stranger in bandages, gloomy deserted landscapes and long corridors with flickering neon lights. The scenes of killings and beatings are rather cruel and violent, erotic encounters - explicit, and the ending is thousands miles away from a Hollywood happy ending. But for Ole Bornedal, the writer/director of the Just Another Love Story, the most important message that he wanted to convey to the audience was that everybody carries a dream and the need for a self-fulfillment in life - that life very rarely offers.

With perhaps more graphic violence than needed for plot, JUST ANOTHER LOVE STORY is an updated spin on classic film noir with moments of splendid cinematography, and the usual elements of gripping characters, identity confusion, dark and rainy streets, and narration. If you dig the genre, check out this take!

This movie is Danish with english subtitles. I enjoyed this mesmerizing film noir from start to finish and highly recommend this movie if you enjoy suspenseful thrillers and don't mind subtitles.

The movie started with three tantalizing glimpses of love and then moves into the movie itself, just another love story... The brilliance of this set-up is revealed later in the movie. This movie is full of artful touches and beautifully filmed scenes that make it a great find. I also found it to be an unsettling combination of sadness and suspense.

The story revolves around a middle aged man who appears happily married but upon meeting a young woman, whose current hospital bed ridden state he feels partly responsible for, starts to question his 2.5 kids & white picket fence existence. The rich young woman suffers from amnesia and he temporarily assumes her boyfriend's persona. But things get out of control fast and as he is sucked deeper and deeper into the young woman's mysterious life, his own life begins to crumble around him. Which life does he really want?
