Not everyone's cup of tea, but mine.
3 October 2003 | by rowland-6See all my reviews

I can understand that `Déjà vu' isn't everyone's cup of tea.

Personally I bought it because of the title which intrigued me.

Being sort of a film freak I like all sorts of movies, and although being a middle-aged male I have a very special feeling for romantic dramas and comedies. And I must say I like `Déjà vu' very, very much. I didn't know anything about it when I started watching it, but was immediately drawn into the story. It isn't an ordinary Hollywood movie where things have to happen quickly all the time. Here people are allowed to talk. They are allowed to be uncertain, searching, confused, not knowing what to do with or how to express their feelings. But if you haven't experienced, or don't think it is possible to do so, what it is, or may be, to suddenly be hit by love and passion, then I understand if you can't relate to this film. But all who can will probably feel a sting in their hearts. As I said, to me `Déjà vu' is a very, very good movie, and I also like the way it is filmed. I have watched it several times and will certainly watch it several times more.
