Overview

Part romantic comedy and part black comedy, director Yann Samuell's 2003 feature film debut Jeux d'Enfants (Love Me if You Dare) follows the exploits of two young would-be lovers as they go from childhood to adulthood with themselves as the greatest hurdle to their own happiness. Julien and Sophie first meet at the age of eight when both are undergoing great trauma: Julien is watching his mother die and Sophie has become the focus of intense hazing at the hands of some fellow schoolmates. On one fateful day, Julien decides to stick up for Sophie and pulls a practical joke on her tormentors. Henceforth, the two embark on a close friendship that revolves around daring each other to pull increasingly audacious practical jokes, rather than on the seemingly obvious intimate relationship they seem dangerously close to discovering at any moment. Jeux d'Enfants was selected for inclusion into the 2003 Toronto International Film Festival as well as that same year's Telluride International Film Festival.

    This is one dark yet playful comedy…… and O’ I’m Game!

    Many people will comment that movie is reminiscent of Amelie with its poetic vision and loveable characters. Many probably don't realize that the writer started this piece 2 years before Amelie hit the screen. Whatever the case, this is a beautiful piece which portrays love lasting throughout time in a thoughtful, ingenious way...Jeux d'enfants" tells us the friendship & love story of Julien and Sophie (Guillaume Canet and Marion Cotillard who are fantastic) since their childhood. "Jeux d'enfants" tells what makes the childhood wonderful: freedom, innocence, imagination, unconditional love... Instead of facing their (terrible) problems in life, young Julien and Sophie choose to create a game and make bets that are more and more daring, crazy...and funny. They grow up and game continues. Until when? This movie is a fantasy about escape, about the will to play, and then not being unhappy, at any cost. In the movie Julien told us that this game is his drug and this fairy tale, from its beginning to its wonderful and touching ending, is also about this dependency. I can say easily that this movie is without a doubt one of the most amazing films I've seen this year. It excellently blended so many genres of films, from the dark comedic aspect to the romantic love story that most people know the French for. However, to add on to that, the cinematography and actors certainly didn't hurt the movie. The style of the movie was gorgeous and radiant in it's depiction of emotions, that we often see conveyed in the color scheme of the environment. For example, in an especially romantic scene, the frame is filled with deep purples and passionate reds, colors that seem to strengthen the emotion. How you feel about the ending, and the characters, will be determined by your view of romantic love. Either way, it's a hard movie to forget!

    Watch this movie. I dare you.

    I first saw this movie on the Sundance channel one afternoon. Not very many movies can hold my attention, but this went far beyond my criteria for a movie. In this movie, the love between characters is extreme and passionate. The main characters play games, symbolic for the games we play with our emotions in love, to ferment their bond and make sure it never grows dull. This movie just becomes more and more intense. If you like independent films or those that get you thinking, I would highly recommend this.

    Great Pick!!!

    There is no way you can walk away from this movie without loving it! It fascinates you from the beginning, taking you on this great journey through these people's lives. I laughed and cried, once at the same time!

    Brilliant, shimmery fantasy

    If you've ever been obsessed, obsessively 'connected' to another, to the point of fantasy, you'll understand the compulsion to rigorously test the fantasy. and the inevitable indifference towards incidental destruction of false idols along the way. Terrific acting, beautiful visuals, clever use of rearrangements, reharmonizations of La vie en Rose.

    Great Movie

    I was a little skeptical to rent this movie at first, but trust me it is great! It made me laugh and cry, It wasn't just a cliche romantic or comedic movie. It took risks and they paid off. I would recommend this movie to anyone. Go see it!!

    pretty well done

    I liked this movie very much. I think that the whole meaning in the movie was to say " how far you could go without telling the one person that you love the most , that you do not love him or her" and it was a awesome film to watch over and over again.
