Movie Info

Arnaud Viard's 2003 French-language feature Clara et Moi chronicles the eccentric romance between the 33-year-old struggling actor Antoine (Julien Boisselier of Le Convoyeur) and Clara (Julie Gayet Les Menteurs), a girl he happens to meet on the subway. Clara happens along at exactly the right time for Antoine, who - worn out from celibacy - has just avowed to his analyst that he'll find a wife within a set period. All is heaven at first, almost farcically so (and Viard, well aware of this, even defies the audience's formic expectations by playfully interjecting a musical number into the middle of the movie, in which the lovers "sing" their feelings to one another, ala Demy). But suddenly, a dark and unexpected twist emerges in the relationship, that strips bare Antoine's emotional immaturity and thus threatens to bring everything crashing down. Michel Aumont co-stars. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Clara and Me (Clara et Moi)

    Antoine has what every young single man could wish: a promising career, true and loyal friends, and an apartment of his own. However, he's a lonely man, until he meets Clara, a beautiful and exciting woman, and deeply falls in love with her. All his loneliness turns into joy... but then he finds out that Clara has got HIV. Drama with a twist... Lovely to watch!

    I enjoyed this movie. Falls into the category of movies to think about. Antoine and Clara fall in love. But can their love survive a major blow? I found the movie dragged a bit. Reading the English translation for French poetry can't be the same thing as understanding it in French.

    A classic example of a good idea executed poorly. I didn't believe in the romance for one second, which made everything that came after somewhat fake. The ending was awkward.
