Just Another Love Story

A stable family man (Anders W. Berthelsen) is involved in a terrifying multicar crash, and paying a hospital visit to another driver left comatose by the accident (Rebecka Hemse) he's mistaken by her relatives as her new boyfriend. When she comes to, her memory is gone, and the visitor is too smitten with her to end the charade. 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 (2002), and in fact shares one of that film's main actors (Nikolaj Lie Kaas, who shows up here as the woman's real boyfriend). After a while, though, the two movies diverge: Bier was interested in probing her anguished characters, whereas Bornedal, best known here for the Ewan McGregor thriller Nightwatch, steers his mistaken-identity story in a more generic direction. In Danish with subtitles. 100 min.
