Consensus: An intense foreign language noir, Just Another Love Story uses some generic methods to tell its tale of mistaken identity but is sharply entertaining nonetheless.

Wally Hammond
Time Out

Ambitious cross-cutting and occasional bursts of strident music hint at psychologically complex parallels and readings that the film fails to deliver.

Chicago Reader

[Bornedal] steers his mistaken-identity story in a more generic direction.

Pamela Jahn
Electric Sheep

The film's emotional power comes from its double investigation of love and identity, falseness and authenticity.

Boston Globe

It's good, nasty fun until it gets boxed in by its own contrivances toward the end.

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.

Edward Porter
Sunday Times (UK)

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.

Walter V. Addiego
San Francisco Chronicle

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.

Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times

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.

Philip French
Observer (UK)

This engrossing Danish thriller is like the 1995 Sandra Bullock vehicle While You Were Sleeping merged with Festen and turned into a film noir.

A more than solid movie that in some scenes feels a bit pretentious, but it's still well made and tells a solid story. I liked the dynamic of the last act… More
