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

The kind of precious whimsy that you want to squash.
| Original Score: 1/4

A concoction that contains nothing recognizable from the lives of real people and no recognizable truth.

Although fast-paced with unpredictable twists and turns, the game doesn't live up to Julien's description of it as being 'better than drugs, sex, masturbation.'
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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

The story was so artificially sour that it seemed ludicrous, unimportant and unbelievable.

Only the French, those self-proclaimed sages of 'l'amour fou,' would dream of concocting a surreal romantic allegory like Yann Samuell's grown-up fairy tale.

The sort of heavy-handed fantasy that gives 'insufferable whimsy' a bad name.

Fetishizes one couple's mating game at the expense of anyone unlucky enough to be in their path.

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

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.

It twinkles itself right into a rubber room.

Gag me with a croque monsieur.

August 19, 2004
Samuell's naivety and inexperience lead to this being an uncomfortable, if intriguing, mess.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

For his feature film debut, director Yann Samuell mainlines into Amelie for inspiration but can scarcely muster a contact high.

Doesn't quite hang together.
