Just Another Love Story

Denmark 2007

A husband and father, Jonas (Anders W. Berthelsen) lives a quietly predictable life in the suburbs. When he inadvertently causes a car accident that leaves a young woman, Julia (Rebecka Hemse), with amnesia, he finds himself telling incredible lies to make her and her family happy. By pretending to be Julia's boyfriend, Jonas opens up a brand-new life for himself, one full of exotic and endless possibilities.

Amazing work of cinema. A black comedy that could be compared to "While You Were Sleeping" but add the love interest in a coma add an affair and a slew of screwed up stuff that happens a la some crime noir. Amazing twist and some very intense moments.
Actually turns around and leaves the black comedy in the dust with just intense and emotional anguish. The editing and the grain of the film is intricately astonishing. Do not miss this film.
