Movie: Love Me If You Dare

Love Me If You Dare (Jeux d'enfants) is one of the coolest movies I've ever seen, and it is easily one of my favorites. The vivid color and unconventional plot are reminiscent of Amelie, everyone's favorite French film, but Love Me If You Dare tells a story all its own.

Starring heartthrob Guilluame Canet as Julien and Marion Cotillard as Sophie, Love Me If You Dare begins when Julien and Sophie meet as children; they immediately commence an exciting (and oftentimes disturbing) game of outdoing each other with outrageous dares. (Cap ou pas cap?) The games continue through college and into adulthood, and with each dare it becomes more difficult for Julien and Sophie to admit their love for one another. I won't tell you exactly how things turn out for them, but I have to say that it was the most romantic, yet strangely unromantic, ending to a movie I can say I've ever seen.

Again, it's not your typical romantic comedy, but that's what makes it so cool. You'll laugh, you'll be shocked, you'll fall in love with love. Love Me If You Dare is out on DVD, and I highly recommend checking it out.
