LOVE ME IF YOU DARE (JEUX D'ENFANTS) is a visually inventive and darkly comic, romantic fantasy. Yann Samuell's directorial debut was a major hit at the French box office and stars Guillaume Canet (from THE BEACH) and Marion Cotillard (featured in Tim Burton's BIG FISH).
Julien (Guillaume Canet) and Sophie (Marion Cotillard) have been friends since childhood when they tried to escape their troubled young lives by setting each other an endless series of challenges. Whoever held a brightly coloured carousel candy tin controlled the next dare. At first the dares are mischievous and innocent, however as the years go by and their obvious love for one another goes unrequited, the more bitter and spiteful their dares become. The stakes get higher and higher, as mischievous pranks turn increasingly bizarre and destructive as Julien and Sophie take their childhood game of dare to the extreme.
Sophie is never sure whether Julien is being forthright in reciprocating her feelings or if he's just playing the game. Can these two soulmates ever put an end to the dangerous competition and give in to their true feelings for each other?
