Jonas, a married man, finds himself in a car accident. The other driver, Julia, is critically injured. When Jonas visits Julia in the hospital, her family mistakes him for Sebastian, her new fiance. The situation grows even more complicated when Jonas realizes that Julia, now amnesiac, also thinks he is the one she loves.

We hate to say it, but we can't find anywhere to view this film.

Village Voice by

Danish director Ole Bornedal (Nightwatch) continues a career of laying the groundwork for remakes that will be middling in more familiar, English-language ways.


Salon by Andrew O'Hehir

You could call Just Another Love Story nothing more than an exercise in style, but A) Bornedal's got style to burn and B) that's not quite fair. Beneath all the dazzling cinematography, propulsive score and overcommitted acting, I found this movie an affecting, mordant comedy about male midlife crisis in its most extreme form.


Chicago Reader by J.R. Jones

In its voluble mix of accident trauma and infidelity, this 2007 Danish feature by Ole Bornedal is highly reminiscent of Susanne Bier's superb "Open Hearts."


Variety by Justin Chang

Contrived excess is rarely as entertaining as it is in the ironically titled Just Another Love Story, a furiously overheated romantic thriller from Danish writer-helmer Ole Bornedal.


Chicago Sun-Times by Roger Ebert

It's interesting that two of the best thrillers of the last several months, "Tell No One" and Just Another Love Story, have come from Europe. Both movies gain because they star actors unfamiliar to us.


New York Post by V.A. Musetto

A creative mix of horror, noir and psychological thriller. At times the story defies logic, but viewers who can accept that will find themselves caught up in the film's intensity.


San Francisco Chronicle by Walter Addiego

You can see this Danish offering as a sardonic update of familiar noir material, or simply as the story of the midlife crisis of a guy who wishes - or dreams, or dreads - that he's living out a grand drama. There are pleasures to be had either way.
