The picture is the equivalent of a little boy eating a worm to impress the little girl he has a crush on.

At first, the movie feels and looks inventive -- charming, even -- but when the semi-adorable moppets mutate into morally repugnant adults, its appeal quickly dissipates.

There's an outlaw fascination in watching two people for whom going too far is never far enough.

Exasperating, annoying and unlikable.

Doesn't quite hang together.

Like a cutout without backing, the star figures being either adorable (if you care to indulge) or very irritating.

The problem is, the characters eventually start to seem like a couple of idiots.

[V]eers wildly from icky instances of near-incest to repulsive demonstrations of emotional brutality...

Writer-director Yann Samuell is a wizard, crafting a movie universe that steals a little of Amelie's fantastical whimsy and a little of Run Lola Run's pedal-to-the-metal energy.

The elegantly photographed, unconventional French romance was apparently intended as a valentine to individual liberation. If so, rarely has the line between individual liberation and selfish irresponsibility seemed so blurry.

Has all the visual attributes and surface charm of Amelie.

It stretches to the snapping point the French tendency to forgive lovers' transgressions, while presenting as love interests a pair of cretins whose casual cruelty and immature antics render them entirely loathsome.

In this toxic tale of young psychopaths in love, the stylish, often stunning visuals are ultimately outmatched by the repellent protagonists at the story's center.

Apparently, the idea of their passion is enough to save them from a life of boredom -- if only it had the same happy effect on us.

Strangely frustrating, because Julien and Sophie choose misery and obsession as a lifestyle, and push far beyond reason.

Someday, when Samuell finds something to say, he may make a great movie. For now, he's only playing games.
