Jeux d’enfants (Love Me If You Dare)

Well, thanks to YouTube (and Chin-chin's almighty convincing powers), I decided to watch this French flick instead of reviewing for my long exams.

Jeux d’enfants (Love Me If You Dare) is a love story between childhood friends Julien and Sophie. Everyday, they think that life is just full of dares and games, thanks to the magical tin can toy (whatever you call that truth-or-dare game). Although they act impishly in school and home, they still enjoy the company of each other. As they grew up into young adults, Sophie realized that she was already in love with her best friend, Julien, though the problem is, Julienne acts as if he’s still eight years old. But eventually, the feeling was mutual and they fell in love with each other.

What I really admire on this movie is the story. Actually I thought it was a dreary and cheesy romance film but as I progressed on to the movie, I fell in love with it. The movie portrays lots of adventures, misadventures, funny moments, tears and etcetera. Also, the flick suggests love in an indirect manner. Unlike some ordinary romance movies which portray love unswervingly, Jeux d’enfants showcases love in a surrealistic approach. It’s like constructing a sentence with a splash of figures of speech, metaphor and hyperbole to be exact. Some scenes where undeniably impossible to exist in real life but the emphasis is really there.

This flick elucidates the meaning of true and unconditional love. The feeling is irrevocable. The ending was really, REALLY touching I tell you. So if you want to feel that you’re in love (again or for the first time), I guarantee you, yes YOU to watch this French flick.

Game or not? Cap u pa cap? ;)

Got this from YouTube. Let Go - Imogen Heap with scenes from Jeux d'enfants. I just posted this video so you'll have an idea about it. :)
