An Unlikely Romance review
Review of An Unlikely Romance
Unlikely Romance is about two girls who are going through a tough life. The movie is based on a true story, which director Vojnár combines with his own story, capturing the lives of two almost adult women. The main characters Luisa and Erika are trying to fulfill their dreams of life success. Luisa wants to become an actress, even though her husband is strongly against it and starts to complicate her life. Erika would like to become a teacher, but she has to earn her degree as a professional cleaner first. The story is told retrospectively, and the viewer enters into it through Louise's stay in a psychiatric hospital. Unlikely Romance is a two-dimensional film. In one, the heroine Louisa, an actress, finds herself in psychiatry after dramatic life circumstances, and during her stay she recounts her memories and experiences, which, the viewer can never be sure they are true. The second part shows in retrospect the relationship between Luise and Erika, who earns money as a cleaning woman in the theater where she plays first.
