What a wonderful and demented love story!

The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

It twinkles itself right into a rubber room.

Slant Magazine

For his feature film debut, director Yann Samuell mainlines into Amelie for inspiration but can scarcely muster a contact high.

Full Review Source: Slant Magazine | Original Score: 1.5/4

Shadows on the Wall

Has a gimmicky, inventive style like Amelie, but the comedy has a very nasty edge.

Movie characters don't have to be nice, but they do need to be interesting. Nastiness without intrigue translates, in whatever language, to 'annoying.'

Gianni Truzzi
Seattle Post-Intelligencer

The dreamlike amber washes and comic visual asides stress the otherness of the pair's reality, but seem to offer a limp excuse for their deluded exemption from empathy.

Reel Film Reviews

Love Me If You Dare presents a...cynical and often downright cruel perspective on relationships, though the film's bubbly look keeps it from becoming too dark.

Nick Dawson
Empire Magazine

Samuell's naivety and inexperience lead to this being an uncomfortable, if intriguing, mess.

Film Journal International

Entertaining and appalling at once, an exercise in aesthetics that replaces the traditional unities with paradox, irony and cynicism.

Love Me If You Dare is far from everybody's cup of latte, but for those willing to take that dare, it has plenty to chew on.

A romantic dark comedy that'll have you scratching your head anew at what [the French] considers entertainment.

Ultimately, viewers will have to ask themselves if they're game; those who are will be in for quite a ride.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

The story was so artificially sour that it seemed ludicrous, unimportant and unbelievable.

Kevin John Bozelka
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

It doesn't point toward a new way to live our lives; it smugly applauds the 'radical' choices of one self-absorbed, sociopathic boy-girl couple.

| Original Score: 1.5/4

Robert W. Butler
Kansas City Star

Saved by the performances of Canet and Cotillard, who find the desperate romantic yearning beneath their characters' selfish and cruel behavior.

Samuell has his gorgeous but borderline-psychopathic characters devise nasty pranks that not only strike each other in the hearts but inflict much collateral damage.

Melds the magic of childhood memories with the pain of unrequited love.

Provides an enjoyable ride, even if style wins out over substance.

The leads in Love Me If You Dare, both juvenile and adult, are charming (if not quite in the Audrey Tautou range), and the cinematography and special effects are expertly done.
