The romantic leads are too obnoxious and self-centered to generate interest or sympathy.

Movie Info

Part romantic comedy and part black comedy, director Yann Samuell's 2003 feature film debut Jeux d'Enfants (Love Me if You Dare) follows the exploits of two young would-be lovers as they go from childhood to adulthood with themselves as the greatest hurdle to their own happiness. Julien and Sophie first meet at the age of eight when both are undergoing great trauma: Julien is watching his mother die and Sophie has become the focus of intense hazing at the hands of some fellow schoolmates. On one fateful day, Julien decides to stick up for Sophie and pulls a practical joke on her tormentors. Henceforth, the two embark on a close friendship that revolves around daring each other to pull increasingly audacious practical jokes, rather than on the seemingly obvious intimate relationship they seem dangerously close to discovering at any moment. Jeux d'Enfants was selected for inclusion into the 2003 Toronto International Film Festival as well as that same year's Telluride International Film Festival.

Audience Reviews for Love Me if You Dare

    Not only is every scene between mother and son hideously corny and sentimental, but it is almost impossible to put up with two sociopaths so utterly immature, disgusting and loathsome amid conflicts that are all childish, irritating and artificial.

    Jeux d'enfants which literally means Children's games is one of the most absurd and eccentric movie I've ever watch. The directing, dialogue, cinematography, background score and cast were superb. The movie narrates a different kind of love story, the extreme one. And with the ending leaving you with more questions than when you started, I recommend it highly to anyone who is looking for something refreshing with pure ecstasy. Guillaume Canet and Marion Cotillard has an amazing chemistry, would love to see these two together again in another film. 9/10.

    Cute comedy that takes place over a number of years. Not too bad of an effort.
