Editors Note
Note The title HE LOVES ME, HE LOVES ME NOT is more ironic and telling than the unknowing viewer would dare to guess. A whimsical love story, yes it is. But its whimsy is short-lived and fades quickly to concentrate on the dark underbelly of relationships, emotional attachment, and the complexity of the human spirit. Audrey Tautou delivers a beguiling performance as Angelique, a lovely and passionate young art student. Having just received a grant to work on a series of new paintings, she rushes through her days busily working while always finding time to send secret gifts to her lover, Loic (Samuel Le Bihan). Loic is a successful cardiologist who is older and busier than Angelique. But that does not deter her dedication to him, or sway her to consider dating a classmate who says he's in love with her. Halfway through the film, writer-director Laetitia Colombani employs a narrative technique that changes everything, bringing a chilling flip side to the story. A creative and colorful work, with excellent supporting roles played by Isabelle Carre and Clement Sibony, HE LOVES ME, HE LOVES ME NOT is poised to pounce as a new entry in the romantic thriller genre.
New York Times "...[A] devious romantic thriller..." 02/14/2003 p.E19
USA Today "...Captivating....Tautou's beguiling smile and gamine quality are an effective counterpoint to Le Bihan's understated appeal..." 02/14/2003 p.13D
Los Angeles Times "...An impressively assured and confident first film....It is ultimately unsettling in the utmost, its creepiness leavened by only the slightest touch of pitch-dark humor..." 02/14/2003 p.C10
Entertainment Weekly "...Tautou projects the same gamine glow, the same serene devotion to l'amour as she did in the movie that made her famous..." 03/21/2003 p.127

Review He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not is an impressively assured and confident first film and has been made with such attention to detail and mood that it's possible to regret not paying closer attention to its cleverly deceptive first part. It is ultimately unsettling in the utmost, its creepiness leavened by only the slightest touch of pitch-dark humor.

Review It's difficult to overstate how much of a rare find this movie is. Colombani and her cast remind us that the best thrillers are built upon superb writing and strong acting. He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not has both, and the result is a surprising and devious motion picture where one person's viewpoint represents only half of the story.
