Movie Info

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 her lovesick friend, David (Clément Sibony), who begins to resent the way Loïc treats Angélique. As Angélique grows less discreet in her affections, Loïc's home life begins to fall apart. His wife grows suspicious, and then miscarries. His career is jeopardized when a patient accuses him of assault. All the while, Angélique is desperate to be by his side. About 40 minutes in, writer/director Laetitia Colombani's film reverses perspective, showing the preceding events from Loïc's (very different) point-of-view. ~ Josh Ralske, Rovi

Critic Reviews for He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

All Critics (72) | Top Critics (28)

  • A thriller that doesn't thrill.

    May 29, 2003 | Rating: 2/5
  • An off-kilter 'romance' with a wicked streak of dark humor.

    May 23, 2003
  • 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.

    May 16, 2003 | Rating: 4/5
  • A dazzling diversion with dark undertones.

    May 3, 2003 | Rating: A-
  • A pretty nifty mystery about deranged love, and if nothing is truly startling, it's still smartly put together and completely entertaining.

  • Tautou's portrait of delusion is painted with true conviction and with the sort of precise sense of detail that will make you either recall someone you've known who's just like her or be extremely thankful you can't.

    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 a story of love gone wrong until it backed up and the other side was told. But then, it was still a story of love gone wrong. Enjoyed the ending. Audrey Tautou is so cute and innocent, I can't wait to watch another movie of hers. Good movie to watch on a Sunday afternoon drinking a glass of wine.

    Audrey Tautou is one of my favourite actresses but in this role as Angélique - a successful art student who has won a scholarship, she is interesting and intriguing... but fails to be exceptional! A movie which I'll recomend - romantic thriler with few twists, but do not expect too much!
