A thriller that doesn't thrill.

May 23, 2003
An off-kilter 'romance' with a wicked streak of dark humor.
May 16, 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.

The film is deft, delicious work, but a very different romantic fantasy than you probably expect.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
April 11, 2003
A pretty nifty mystery about deranged love, and if nothing is truly startling, it's still smartly put together and completely entertaining.

April 11, 2003
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.

March 21, 2003
It's both a stylish exploration of a young woman's obsession and a refreshing tweak to the screen persona of that art-house darling, Audrey (Amélie) Tautou.

March 14, 2003
Made without the finesse or depth of character that would distinguish it from any number of American-made thrillers about homicidal spurned lovers.

February 28, 2003
Colombani knows how to stir strands of dark humor into a movie whose tone dances nimbly between the merry and the macabre.

In her novice effort, Ms. Colombani proves herself to be actor-friendly, audience-friendly and story-friendly.

February 20, 2003
As for Ms. Tautou, she demonstrates that she's much, much more than just another pretty face. You may love her or you may hate her, but you will never be bored by her.
February 19, 2003
The sharp reversal of direction represents more of a betrayal than a mere plot twist.
February 14, 2003
A story of love and obsession that makes for an intriguing cinematic experience on Valentine's or any other day.

February 14, 2003
An acerbic examination of erotic obsession, told from different perspectives, with wit, suspense and cold-blooded detachment.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
February 14, 2003
There's an acrid aftertaste to writer-director Laetitia Colombani's cunning tale of love gone wrong.

February 14, 2003
It's a sugar cube laced with arsenic, a nasty little film whose mean-spiritedness is surpassed only by its mediocrity.

February 13, 2003
The notion of turning Ms. Tautou's waifish charms back on themselves to suggest a demonic witchery may be a dramatic conceit. But it never registers as more than a gimmick in a movie conceived as a sophisticated Gallic stunt.

February 13, 2003
A weird, bubbly cocktail -- effervescent charm and troubling pathology, shaken together.

February 13, 2003
It is ultimately unsettling in the utmost, its creepiness leavened by only the slightest touch of pitch-dark humor.

Though I wouldn't call He Loves Me a total success, it's smart, intriguing and quite ambitious.

February 12, 2003
Slickly enjoyable little number, which cannily plays off the ingénue image of Amélie's Audrey Tautou.
February 12, 2003
A valentine for those who thought the beatific smiles dispensed by Audrey Tautou in the spun-sugar French romantic comedy Amélie were more loony than lovely.
