I went into this perhaps some place deep inside thinking we'd seen all kinds of love stories, but on the very brutal surface this is like no other love story ever told. The lead characters grow up together and form a sweet then bitter romance and are ultimately meant to be in the very twisted landscape they create for themselves. A delight in its vivid and darkest moments...

Interesting to watch the 2 actors falling in love, knowing that they're now married with children...but the movie itself had to have been written by someone who was tripping HARD on acid! Prepare for a twisted ride...

A French romcom which tries desperately to be whimsical, and fails miserably.

Quirky, demented, impulsive, Marion Cotillard at her prettiest and Le Vie en Rose constantly playing in the background to complete this dreamy love story. Definitely worth a watch. The editing could have been crispier though.

Given how much I enjoyed this film, I was a little surprised by the derision from some other viewers. It seems many are mostly off-put by the selfishness and immaturity of the lead characters. Fair enough. I guess for me the likeability of the characters weighs little on how watchable they are, and although I can agree that I'd never want to meet these people in real life, I still felt it was entertaining to watch the various misadventures they get into. True, you don't exactly root for them, but why do you need to?
I also found the film's approach to be creative and visually pleasing to watch, and Cotillard and Canet have brilliant chemistry, which certainly helps. Overall, I'd happily watch this again. But I guess if you need your romantic leads to be likeable or are expecting an appropriate moral message, perhaps steer clear.

Best ending I've ever seen in a chick flick... if you can call this a chick flick...

I loved this movie! This genre is not for everyone, and there are distinct differences between the expectations of European and North American cinema. Yes, there were jaw-dropping moments of cruelty and audacity, but you can sympathize with the characters and understand the meaning of the dares and their roles in others lives when you remember the roots of their dysfunction. Julien is afraid of intimacy because he lost the first woman he ever loved, his mother. Sophie became hardened as a defense mechanism to cope with living in the immigrant ghetto and because the boy she wanted to love her was too immature and protective of himself to reciprocate. The library scene indicated that he wanted a true love relationship, but he was minutes too late to act on his change of heart. Julien gave up a relationship with his father to hold on to whatever he had with Sophie. Ultimately, the final scenes when they were in their 30's brings everything together and they're both ready for the same thing, even if it only lasts a few hours. What do you expect from two messed up people who understood each other on a very deep level, whether it was healthy or not? The craziness kept their spirits alive.

A fast paced & contemporary film about two very unorthodox couple that has unique relationship based on dares.

Marion Collitard is sensational in a role that I believe got her a lot of US Attention.

It's has a distinct visual style & charm & it's undoubtedly like able. The ending leaves you with mixed opinions but the film is entertaining through out.

This film hits all the wrong notes for me. It is frustrating and unbelievable. While the intention to do something different in the romance genre is commentable,the movie itself isn't. Main characters' acts/dares are often hurtful and selfish not only for themselves but also for the others around. Not the kind of true love story we need.

This French movie has a fascinating concept and it's one of Marion Cotillard's earlier roles. Those are the two big things it's got going for it along with some cool stuff happening visually, and a really natural chemistry between the two leads, Cotillard and Guillaume Canet. (Who ended up dating a few years later and are still together I might add). But for some reason, this movie just kind of rubbed me the wrong way. It mostly was because of the rules of their game. They just kept doing these awful things to each other and then they started dragging other people into it unwillingly. It's like the two characters were meant for each other because they weren't good people. I don't know. I would be interested to hear other people's thoughts on this one.
