"I’m not going to say that the movie had a profound or a life changing impact on me but yes, I enjoyed it although at first I found JP’s acting of the dysfunctional type getting a little bit under my skin.
Two lovers is a movie that should not really be viewed from a realistic perspective. Sure enough, those characters are probably never to be found in real life and I cannot imagine of a sane, good-looking female becoming enchanted by the fact that a strange guy asked his mother to dance with him while at his father dry cleaner, but then again that’s what’s good about a film: it’s a work of fiction and as such it’s up to the audience to decide to cross the fine line between reality & empathy, abstraction & fiction.
I found the movie an interesting attempt to explain romantic love or at least the notions associated with it. The pain, the misleading interpretations of actions and words, the subjective point of view making people believe what they need to believe, the vulnerability and the insecurity – the film touches on all the above in a brave but quiet, almost esoteric way. It doesn’t have to be a masterpiece and it has no claims to be one but it ends in a rather tragic and bittersweet way, painfully human, so in the end it worked for me."
