Just Another Love Story

Jonas (Anders W. Berthelsen) grew up wanting to be a photographer framing sceneries and landscapes. Adulthood finds him leading a humdrum life as a police photographer with a wife and two kids. The only thing that his lenses frame are dead bodies. Everything turns topsy turvy when runs in to Julia (Rebecka Hemse) in a car crash. An awkward circumstances finds himself slipping in to the skin of her boyfriend. And so the film ventures in to existential angst territory only to disappointingly drift away in to the thriller area. Maybe it was the initial expectation that did me in with this finely crafted movie. Expectation is indeed the mother of all disappointments.
