Movie Summary

Director:
Yann Samuell
Released:
2004
Rating:
R
Love Me If You Dare (Jeux d’enfants – French title) is the 2004 french romantic drama starring Academy Award winning actress Marion Cotillard, and is now available on Amazon.com. It is visionary french director Yann Samuell's heavily stylized film debut about Julien and Sophie (two kids from opposite sides of the track) who's unbreakable and controversial bond is often taken to great extremes. When Julien’s mom dies when he is only 8, he turns to Sophie for an escape from reality. They go through life together trading-off embarrassing and often dangerous dares (creating a scene at a funeral, standing blindfolded on train tracks, and the most dangerous of all - a kiss). Though their actions break apart their relationships and isolate their families, the game keeps growing and keeps them together. Only when they have nothing left, will they have everything they want - each other. Guillaume Canet; Marion Cotillard; Emmanuelle Gronvold; Gerard Watkins.

    Variety Lisa Nesselson

    Valiant attempt to create a modern fairytale ends up being frustratingly creepy instead of haunting and memorable.
