Love Me if You Dare
Filmfest 2004

This French romantic comedy-drama begins when 8-year-old Sophie is teased by classmates on the school bus and Julien befriends her. He's feeling like an outsider because his mother is dying, and they shut out the world by inventing a game of outrageous dares. The strange part is that they keep up the game until they've grown into love-starved adults (Guillaume Canet and Marion Cotillard) and unaware that it prevents them from realizing they're meant for each other. Yann Samuell, the first-time director, has set the story in an allegorical universe that sometimes feels like a fairy tale and sometimes feels more serious.
