Allegro ★½ 2005

Emotionally frigid pianist Zetterstrom (Thomson) is unable to tell his girlfriend Andrea (Christensen) that he loves her, which causes some bizarre time rupture. He loses his memories, which are sealed-off in a special section of Copenhagen called the Zone. When Zetterstrom returns to Copenhagen after ten years, he's instructed to go to Zone and see if he can recapture his past. Since the romantic leads have zero chemistry, this doesn't seem too important but the visual effects are kinda cool. Danish with subtitles. 88m/C DVD . CZ Ulrich Thomsen, Henning Moritzen, Helena Christensen, Svetoslav Korolev; D: Christoffer Boe; W: Christoffer Boe, Mikawel Wulff; C: Manuel Alberto Claro; M: Thomas Knak.
