Movie Reviews

An Old-Fashioned Love Story for Cynical People
11/15/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Deja Vu is a wonderful movie! I saw it in the theaters over a year ago, and I have been awaiting its release on video. It's a story about two cynical 90s people who meet and know that they are destined to be together. But not in the silly, Hollywood, Sleepless in Seattle kind of way. These characters are just as cynical as most of us are about romantic destiny. It's not supposed to REALLY happen. It's supposed to be something that we only see in the movies. BUT the strong pull of emotions and, ultimately, more cosmic forces, draws them together. This is an extremely well written and acted film that examines our insecurities about love and destiny without insulting our intelligence."

"OK, so I'm a sucker for any book or film that has to do with serendipity, "coincidence", the passage of time and falling in love - so obviously I fell head-over-heels for this movie. This is not a cynical movie, but it is realistic. It's not about fate, it's about being presented with opportunities and exercising your free will. It's a movie about the suspension of disbelief and trusting something bigger than yourself. It's about life sometimes being inexplicable and accepting that fact. It's all about taking chances, having regrets and living with consequences. The acting is superb - most of the dialogue seems like it is improvised and this lends an immediacy to the film. Now, this may be off putting to people used to the typical Hollywood do-not-deviate-from-the-script approach to acting, but please just trust it and allow yourself to become involved. The main characters - Sean and Dana - have to make some hard choices when they acknowledge their feelings for each other. Each is deeply involved with someone else and the people they are involved with are not horrible people. This is not a romantic fantasy where someone finds their true love, casts off their dismal spouse and rides off into the cardboard sunset. This is real life, in all shades of black, white and grey. The circumstances the characters find themselves in repeatedly would seem to suggest fate, but they know better than that - what happens is up to them, it's a choice and not an easy one. Other characters in the movie have had to make choices in similar circumstances. After watching the movie you'll know that no one can say which choices were "better" than any others - all the choices people make and have to live with are valid even though they may seem foolish or cruel to others. And the universe has a way of working things out. Anyone who has had a similar experience will know just what I'm talking about. Those who haven't - well, perhaps you have something to look forward to..."
I found it!

"I saw this movie in a small theater last year and fell in love with it. I came back with a friend and saw it again on the same day. Every time I've gone in to the video store I've looked for it and was so thrilled and shocked to finally see it on the shelf today that I pushed two people out of the way to grab the last copy! Why do I love it? It touched my soul. I felt connected to the characters and the emotions and the settings. This is pure romance without the hollywood gloss (or the high budget!) Beautifullly written, simply acted, thought-provoking, heart-stirring. There are so many people I want to share this movie with. It's that kind of movie. I'll never get tired of it. 100 Stars! Bravo!"

"I don't have a review, just a statement. I'm 68 years old and have been a movie fan all my life. I think that as of the second time I saw Deja Vu it has replaced Casablanca as my favorite movie ever. Of course if you're not basically a romantic, you may hate it."
