Listing this as a romantic comedy is a severe injustice. The One I Love is equal parts comedy, drama, psychological thriller, with a dash of science fiction. It’s the kind of romantic comedy that Christopher Nolan would make if Christopher Nolan made romantic comedies.
The storyline starts out simple enough – a married couple having lost that loving feeling is off on a weekend retreat to see if anything can be done to renew their love for each other. Expecting to have a weekend of soul-crushing, existential dialog on the meaning of love and their relationship, they instead walk into this weird, alternate universe where each one morphs to become the ‘perfect version’ for the other to love.
Or do they?
