Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Ambitious cross-cutting and occasional bursts of strident music hint at psychologically complex parallels and readings that the film fails to deliver."
‑ Wally Hammond, Time Out
"[Bornedal] steers his mistaken-identity story in a more generic direction."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"It's done with some style, Bornedal telling much of the story in nifty montages set to insistent music, but I couldn't get into the spirit of it."
‑ Edward Porter, Sunday Times (UK)
"High concept thriller which fails to captivate due to unsympathetic characters."
‑ Patrick Peters, Empire Magazine
"Cracking along at a fast pace with a plot full of twists and turns, it's a first-rate thriller and one bound to get the Hollywood remake treatment very soon."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"It's good, nasty fun until it gets boxed in by its own contrivances toward the end."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"I suspect anyone who went for last year's foreign-language pulp fiction of choice, Tell No One, will be rewarded by Ole Bornedal's latest."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"This engrossing Danish thriller is like the 1995 Sandra Bullock vehicle While You Were Sleeping merged with Festen and turned into a film noir."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"The film's best hope is black comedy - it's certainly impossible to take seriously - and yet crazy amounts of it are socked over as bombastic, overedited melodrama."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"It's melodrama, and sometimes absurdist. But there's a sense of humour too and while it trips over itself in the effort to be original, it is an impressive piece of film-making all the same."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"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."
‑ Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle
"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."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"You are swept along by the confidence of the storytelling even as you accept it might not hold up to close scrutiny."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"A fast, furious and fun homage to film noir with heart to spare."
‑ Ali Catterall, Film4
"Bornedal's movie is slick and arresting, and proves again to Hollywood that mature genre film-making is thriving on this side of the Atlantic."
‑ Kevin Maher, Times [UK]
