Following up amnesia, regardless the reason, with flashbacks has been used multiple times, thus new angles are required to make a difference. In ID:A, Danes speak often good French, for example... :) The events take place within a short period in three countries, but the first half or so is a bit protracted and is focused too much on the main character (well, Tuva Novotny performs decently, but a crime thriller with long scenes filled by one single person loses its pace). But then the events begin running, at times too fast, with some improbable moments and explanations... Twists and chases are still in place and the ending ties loose ends nicely up, although some elements are predictable.
Thus, an okay entertainment, but no e.g. Gus Ritchie or Luc Besson.
