He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not
2003
With the streets of Bordeaux as backdrop, this thriller paints a picture of love gone awry. Angelique (Audrey Tautou), an artist and student, is in love and claims that her paramour, Luic, a cardiologist (Samuel Le Bihan), is just as enamored of her. But is he? He's married, for one, and he and his wife are expecting a baby. Brokenhearted, Angelique decides her love should conquer all.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

From the details at right, you could guess the plot, but that doesn’t matter. This film isn’t what it’s about, it’s how it’s about it. Initially boring and then seeming to be a simple mindfuck, it eventually wins you over by conspiring with you against its characters, instead of the other way around. It’s also clever and has a wicked, black sense of humor, or so I hope; I couldn’t stop laughing during the epilogue. “L.O.V.E.” will bring a smile to my face for years to come. What a nightmare this would be to live, but what fun to watch.
