User Review

Love me - cap ou pas cap?

Rating: 10/10

This bittersweet comedy about love is in line with great recent French movies such as Amelie or L'Auberge Espagnole, But Jeux d'Enfants is not trying to copy any of the previous. In fact, it is one of the most original movies I've seen lately.

Directed in a superb way by the inventive Yann Samuell, this film can make you laugh out loud in a minute and shed some tears on the next due to the extreme complexity of the feelings the director and the actors share with you. Nothing in this film seems exaggerated; it's a fairy tale of our time with a great dose of realism.

The chemistry between Guillaume Canet and Marion Cotillard is simply perfect.

Whether you like it or not, it's difficult to be indifferent to this movie and this is one of the best compliments a director can receive.
