Movie Reviews

Improbable love stories, impeccably told
Steve Kuehl | Ben Lomond, CA | 05/06/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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."
Just Another Twisted Tale

"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."
