He Loves Me ... He Loves Me Not is a black comedy with a dramatic twist. Talented art student Angélique (Audrey Tautou) is wildly in love with Loïc (Samuel Le Bihan of Brotherhood of the Wolf), a married cardiologist whose wife, Rachel (Isabelle Carré) is expecting their first child. She sends him mash notes and gifts, and tells her friend, Héloïse (Sophie Guillemin of With a Friend Like Harry...) that, despite appearances, Loïc plans to leave his wife. Angélique also ignores the attentions of

A thriller that doesn't thrill.

An off-kilter 'romance' with a wicked streak of dark humor.

It's more clever than brilliant, but folding two radically different interpretations of a kind gesture, a chance encounter and a Nat King Cole song heard on a car radio is a great trick.

The film is deft, delicious work, but a very different romantic fantasy than you probably expect.

A pretty nifty mystery about deranged love, and if nothing is truly startling, it's still smartly put together and completely entertaining.

It's about love, obsession and revenge and Tautou bewitches us from the very first scene

The execution doesn't quite come together, mostly because of an unnecessary "Memento"-like structure, but the film is still a clever look at romantic obsession.

A fascinating premise, but the film isn't quite grouned enough to strike the chords it strives for.

Nothing can prepare you for the twisty -- and twisted -- details the 26-year-old Colombani almost fiendishly brings to her story of misguided love.

An unsettling and often creepy little thriller, which at first appears to be fairly straightforward but then gets much craftier and considerably more interesting.

Colombani's double-sided view of events works like a jigsaw puzzle, but you may get the chills every time you learn where a new piece connects to an earlier one.

Smacks of the great Hitchcock films in both tone and subject matter.

A great deal of the fun of the movie has to do with the casting of Tatou in a role that is more complicated than her heart-shaped face, Bambi eyes and Amelie goodwill might lead you to expect.

[Take] madness - mixed with inspiration from watching The Sixth Sense. Add a touch of Mulholland Drive and a bag of heart-shaped jujubees, and you'll just about have the flavor of He Loves Me.

Amélie sensation Audrey Tautou is reason enough to ignore anti-French sentiment and enjoy a French, er, Freedom film.

Audience Reviews for He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

Beware of SPOILERS:

It's tough to agree to sit to watch a romantic movie. Not really my cup of tea. But then IMDb had described this as a Thriller too, and so I decided to give it a go. And I'm glad I did. A simple story of troubles arising out of an infatuated teenager's misinterpretations of a married doctor's feelings. However, it's the slick execution that elevates the tempo of the plot & helps maintain the interest in this simple story. I liked how the writers made it as realistic as possible (instead of offering it as a no-brainer entertainer), and made such a crazy story believable enough with relatively few plot-holes. First, the story is told from Angélique's point of view, and thereafter the real circumstances are revealed. Although they don't come as twists as you kinda know what's in store, the effect is still amazing. I didn't like Amelie, but this one's exceptionally good. Indeed, well worth the risk. I was prepared for yet another disappointment, but it didn't come to that. It succeeded in overcoming my negative expectations. Entertaining stuff & a splendid experience. Of course, time & mood has played their role in it too. Some other day, I might have panned this flick for the very same reasons I appreciated it. Mood swings. For now, it's 7/10.

Decent movie, with an interesting twist that I wasn't expecting. A gimmick maybe, but a cleverly employed one that works thanks in no small part to the smart writing, and good performances. As typical for most French fims, this was a little slow...but ejoyable enough.

This was one of the best French movies I have seen in a long time! Half of it is from Angelique's point of view (Audrey Tautou), such a happy, sweet girl that you really feel bad for her that she's being messed around by this married jerk. It is at this point, very visually pretty to look at - lots of reds and hearts, and of course Audrey is very beautiful. Then it switches as .....SPOILER....... Angelique decides to kill herself, and the story starts over again, giving you the chance to see what actually happened from point of view of the married man. Suddenly you realise Angelique is not exactly all she seems!

The French keep on making good movies. This one at a glance would seem like a romantic poop ship, but it is really rather amazing. Without giving it away, it follows a girl's side of the story, then halfway through the movie switches to the beginning showing the guys side, and they are so different it's amazing how it could be twisted to make one storyline. Very good stuff, and Audrey Tautou is a psycho.
